Keck Hospital of USC Earns an “A” Grade for Patient Safety

This was done in accordance with the specifications used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for hospitals nationwide, resulting in Maryland Safety Grades being reported this fall.

For the first time, Maryland hospitals were included in the Leapfrog Safety Grades.

Hilton Head Hospital received the lowest rating of the three for four of the six categories involving doctors, nurses and hospital staff in the recent report.

"What we've learned is that transparency has a real impact on patient safety".

Developed under the guidance of an expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 USA hospitals.
