Denver Health Receives an A for Patient Safety
November 08, 2018
“Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grades recognize Denver Health’s focus on advancing patient safety. This ranking provides an important resource for patients, and a benchmark for hospitals, to determine how care at one hospital compares to others in a region,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade deserve to be recognized for their efforts in preventing medical harm and errors.”
Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
Denver Health was one of 855 hospitals across the US awarded an “A” this fall. To see Denver Health’s full grade details, and to access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit www.hospitalsafetygrade.org.
