Lives Lost, Lives Saved An Updated Comparative Analysis of Avoidable Deaths at Hospitals Graded by The Leapfrog Group

May 21, 2019

In 2012, in an effort to provide patients and health care consumers with information on the safety of their local hospitals, The Leapfrog Group introduced the Hospital Safety Grade, a letter grade rating for hospitals on how safe they are for patients. The Hospital Safety Grade is a composite score of 28 measures of patient safety that are all currently used in national measurement and reporting programs. The Hospital Safety Grade uses performance measures from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and secondary data sources. Hospital Safety Grades are assigned twice a year (in the spring and fall) to more than 2,600 hospitals across the nation. From the calculated scores, hospitals are assigned a letter grade ranging from A to F, with “A” hospitals having the highest scores and “F” hospitals having the lowest scores.
