Thanks to our team of high-quality nurses, physicians and support staff, St. Mary’s General, a member of Prime Healthcare, has earned the nation’s top distinction for patient safety with an “A” grade from the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. The “A” recognizes our high standards in patient safety and a national distinction recognizing achievements in protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections. This honor belongs to every one of our team members, who work every day for our patients.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
