TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center has been recognized with an "A" Hospital Safety Grade by The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit healthcare ratings organization. This puts Maryland near the bottom of Leapfrog's bi-annual state rankings analysis, in which states are ranked according to the percentage of "A" hospitals. "At the very least, everyone should get an A on patient safety". Rhode Island had the most dramatic improvement, jumping from 50th in 2012 to number one in the fall of 2017.
MI ranks 36th in the country for percentage of "A" hospitals - only 19 of the 77 hospitals in the state were given an A. Hawaii moved up from 36th in 2012 to third, while OR moved up from 48th in 2012 to eighth.
"Receiving the highest mark from the Leapfrog Group is a reaffirmation of Kaiser Permanente's commitment to high-quality health care and patient safety", Senior Vice President and Area Manager for Kaiser in the Central Valley area, said in a statement. About a third of hospitals overall earned an "A" from Leapfrog: 832 of the 2,632 hospitals rated this fall. Maryland hospitals - which previously had been the only hospitals exempt from public reporting at the national level due to a federal waiver - performed poorly in their first grading, ranking Maryland among the bottom 10 states.
Leapfrog surveys more than 2,600 hospitals across the USA, of which less than one-third received the "A" rating on the report.
