Mary Greeley Receives ‘A’ for Patient Safety for Seventh Time

For the seventh consecutive time, Mary Greeley Medical Center has received an “A” grade for patient safety from the Leapfrog Group.

Leapfrog has issued its Hospital Safety Score report twice a year since 2012. Mary Greeley has received ‘A’ grades in all seven reports. In this latest grading period, LeapFrog graded 31 Iowa hospitals. Only eight received an ‘A.’ The Leapfrog Group’s Hospital Safety Score is compiled under the guidance of leading experts on patient safety and is the only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety.

The Hospital Safety Score rates how well hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections. Leapfrog’s process uses several measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single ‘A,’ ‘B,’ ‘C,’ ‘D,’ or ‘F’ score representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent nonprofit organization that focuses on improvements in the safety, quality and affordability of health care.
