The Leapfrog Group released the latest update to the Hospital Safety ScoreSM, the A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. For the first time, the Hospital Safety Score now identifies ā€œDā€ and ā€œFā€ hospitals that represent the most hazardous environments for patients in need of care. This latest Hospital Safety Score update accounts for the data updated over the last six months, most covering hospital performance in 2011, and uses a modified methodology based on research and public comments.
