“Every part of our caregiving team, from our physicians and nurses to our transporters and housekeepers and more, is dedicated to ensuring the highest level of safety for our patients and visitors,” says Martin Massiello, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eisenhower Health. “To receive an ‘A’ grade by The Leapfrog Group — the second in this past year — underscores our team’s continued dedication to providing the safest, highest quality of care to our patients.”
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with an over 10-year history of assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system — A, B, C, D, or F — is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.
“This new update of Hospital Safety Grades shows that, at the national level, we saw deterioration in patient safety with the pandemic,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “But this hospital received an ‘A’ despite those challenges. I congratulate all the leaders, staff, volunteers and clinicians who together made that possible.”
