Consistent Demonstration of Patient Safety


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. - Fall 2023 - Holy Redeemer Hospital received an "A" grade for hospital safety for the ninth time in a row from the Leapfrog Group. The hospital has scored an "A" every semiannual cycle since fall 2019. Among many other categories, the fall 2023 grade reveals high achievements in the following areas:

  • Infection control
  • Staff working together to prevent errors
  • Safe medication administration
  • Handwashing
  • Communication with doctors and nurses
  • Responsiveness of hospital staff

According to the Leapfrog Group, Holy Redeemer Hospital is among fewer than 30% of hospitals nationwide to achieve an "A" grade this fall. Among 127 Pennsylvania hospitals, there were only 56 hospitals to achieve an "A" grade. Maintaining high scores over a long period of time makes Holy Redeemer Hospital a “Straight A” performer, and reflects a culture of safety that reveals the ongoing commitment made by every teammate in our hospital.

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national organization, assigns letter grades to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems in place to prevent harm. According to the Leapfrog Group, its hospital safety grade is the only ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Receiving an “A” grade is a sign that hospitals are continuously evaluating their performance, so that they can best protect patients, according to the Leapfrog Group.
