Patient Safety Remains Top Priority - Holy Redeemer Hospital Scores an 'A' Yet Again


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. – Nov. 16, 2022 – Holy Redeemer Hospital received an “A” grade for hospital safety for the seventh time in a row from the Leapfrog Group. The fall 2022 grade reveals high achievements in infection prevention, handwashing and safe medication administration. The hospital has scored an “A” every semiannual cycle since fall 2019.

“Some of our high scores in this cycle’s survey have to do with staff working together to enforce safety, effective leadership in prevention of errors, and the qualifications of our nurses and ICU physicians,” said William Scarlett, DO, MHCM, FACS, FACOS, Senior Vice President Cancer Care and Health Care Delivery at Redeemer Health. “High performance in those talent-based categories results in excellent scores across the board. We’re proud of our team for its ongoing commitment to patient safety.”

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 the systems hospitals have 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. An “A” is a sign that hospitals are continuously evaluating their performance, so that they can best protect patients, according to the Leapfrog Group.

“Our continued success in safe patient care is a reflection of the commitment we made years ago and continue to live up to,” said Jeanette Teets, Redeemer Health VP and Chief Quality, Safety and Reliability Officer. “This level of ongoing success requires focus and responsiveness from all caregivers, staff and leadership.”
