Doctors Hospital, SMH Earn 'A' Grades from Leapfrog Group

11 November, 2018, 01:15
The group assigns A, B, C, D or F letter grades to hospitals.
Leapfrog says its safety score should never be the sole reason for selecting a hospital, and the group advises people to take the score into consideration when choosing a hospital for planned, elective procedures. In the Spring 2018 report, none of Newark's hospitals earned an A. Owens also vowed to improve the hospital's score. The semiannual report measures patient safety at acute care hospitals nationwide-not including children's hospitals. "Our team members and physicians work extremely hard to deliver top-notch care, and I'm so proud Leapfrog has recognized their efforts".
While the scope and methodology of the surveys have evolved over time, hospitals here generally seem to be improving.

"Transparent reporting on care quality is an absolutely critical tool to drive improvements", said state Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal. Still, Duke University Hospital, which handles more complicated cases than a community hospital, was worse than the national average in blood infections and in patient falls and trauma for the past two years. "In this way, patients benefit the most from quality reporting", Elnahal added. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is free to the public, and is updated every six months, once in the fall and once in the spring. Subsets of these findings are also shared in specialty reports, like the organization's annual maternity care report. "Our hospital's long legacy is based on putting patients first and a honest commitment to individuals and families of our community". Three operations - St. Luke's Warren Campus, in Phillipsburg, East Orange General Hospital, and Memorial Hospital of Salem County - were graded only on the information Leapfrog could obtain from publicly available records, according to the report.
"These safety grades reflect the incredible work that is being done through our multi-year journey to establish NorthShore as a top performer nationally in the area of quality and patient safety", health system President and CEO J.P. Gallagher said in a statement. "Our experience shows that hospitals committed to creating a culture of safety and quality perform well". Some 16 facilities (24 percent) scored a B this time, and another 11 (more than 16 percent) got a C grade.
University was awarded the lone D and East Orange got the only F. The state became aware of the infection after a premature baby who received care at the hospital and had the bacteria died at the end of September.
"University Hospital knows that patient trust is built upon the quality and safety of care we provide".
"Safety is truly a part of our DNA, and we are continually evaluating our processes and refining our initiatives to ensure that we are providing the highest quality, safest care to our patients and their families", Terry said. Three - St. Joseph Medical Center, Highline Medical Center, and St. Clare Hospital earned "B" grades.
Saint Michael's CEO Robert Iannaccone said the financial stability that came with the deal has helped contribute to a better score. "We just think there's a wealth of information out there that consumers deserve to have that they don't have about the safety and quality of care, particularly safety", she said. "Our hospital team, clinical providers and physicians offer some of the best care around, and this award recognizes their tremendous dedication". And Leapfrog also assesses training, staffing and hospital protocols.
