Adventist Health Glendale Again Tops Area Hospitals In Safety Study
Adventist Health Glendale aced yet another safety-care study conducted by a national hospital-safety organization. The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., awarded its seventh straight A grade to Adventist Health Glendale, in its spring 2018 results released Tuesday. Leapfrog awards hospital safety grades twice a year based on a number of criteria that measure the quality of patient safety. (Landa, 4/24)
Urban Hospitals Perform Poorly On Leapfrog's Latest Patient Safety Grades
The majority of urban hospitals don't perform well on patient safety measures, according to the latest Hospital Safety Grade report released Tuesday by the Leapfrog Group. Of the 11 hospitals in New York City included in the report, only one—NYC Health & Hospitals/Metropolitan—received an "A" grade from the Leapfrog Group in its spring 2018 report. Additionally, just three of Los Angeles' 12 hospitals got an "A" while only six of Chicago's 18 hospitals did. (Castellucci, 4/24)
