The designation recognizes Huntington Hospital's efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.
Saint Michael's and Beth Israel were among 855 hospitals across the United States and 38 in New Jersey awarded an A by Leapfrog in the Fall 2018.
"Leapfrog's Hospital Safety Grades recognize hospitals like Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, CHI St. Luke's Health-The Woodlands Hospital and CHI St. Luke's Health Brazosport that focus on advancing patient safety".
Huron-Valley and Harper-Hutzel Hospital are part of an elite group of hospitals in MI and across the country to earn Leapfrog's top A score.
Of the 110 IL hospitals evaluated, 39 percent earned an A and 27 percent earned both Bs and Cs.
Binder said hospitals' performance on the barcode medication administration measure isn't enough to sway a hospital's overall grade. The state was also tops for the rate of hospitals participating in the survey.
"Healthcare is complex, but at the end of the day nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our patients".
"It really takes an "all-in" approach to move the needle on healthcare quality".
"The hospital industry is most efficient in addressing patient safety when they work together, I think that is why when we see an improvement like in New Jersey it suggests that the whole hospital industry has been focused on this as a goal", Binder said.
While the scope and methodology of the surveys have evolved over time, hospitals here generally seem to be improving. Mercy Hospital of Buffalo received a grade of "B". CHI Franciscan hospitals' high ratings put the system at the top of the state for safe care. Since last summer, his department has been working closely with University Hospital to address a number of quality and financial challenges and is leading an infection-control campaign to assess practices at a handful of long-term pediatric facilities, two of which have been struck with a viral outbreak that killed 10 highly vulnerable patients. "In this way, patients benefit the most from quality reporting", Elnahal added. The safety grades, given to USA hospitals in the spring and fall of each year, are based on 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data. Subsets of these findings are also shared in specialty reports, like the organization's annual maternity care report. It covers process measures like hand hygiene and staff responsiveness, but it also looks at hospital outcomes in areas such as infection rates, patient falls and pressure ulcers.
The poorest-performing hospitals were East Orange General Hospital, which was graded an F; and University Hospital in Newark, which got a D.
What's more, because the letter grade is relative to other hospitals, a particular hospital's safety score can slip even if that hospital's performance stays the same, just because other hospitals improved. "That's the common denominator", she said.
Hospitals in the Triangle rank among the nation's best for patient safety, according to the fall 2018 survey issued Thursday by the Washington-based nonprofit Leapfrog Group. Across the country slightly more than half received an A or a B.
University was awarded the lone D and East Orange got the only F. The state-funded hospital is now operating under a monitor and the state identified a number of serious infection control deficiencies during a recent inspection, following a bacterial outbreak that infected four medically fragile infants, one of whom may have died as a result. The acute care hospital earned a "B" Hospital Safety Score. A physician network of 1,800 New England Quality Care Alliance doctors represents our strong commitment to health in the community. Three - St. Joseph Medical Center, Highline Medical Center, and St. Clare Hospital earned "B" grades. Maybe, Binder said, but "that's why we have 28 measures in this score ..." "This elite rating from Leapfrog, along with our recent Vizient five-star rating for quality and patient safety, affirms our national reputation for excellence in patient care and as leaders in patient safety".
