Redeemer Health Achieves 'A' Grade for Hospital Safety Again from Nationally Recognized Leapfrog Group

Redeemer Health received an “A” grade for hospital safety for the seventh time in a row from the Leapfrog Group. The summer 2022 grade reveals high achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error at Holy Redeemer Hospital.

“Our continued success in safe patient care is a testimony to the commitment exhibited by our caregivers, our leadership team, and our entire workforce,” said Jeanette Teets, Redeemer Health VP and Chief Quality, Safety and Reliability Officer. “In fact, some of the areas in which Holy Redeemer Hospital scored very highly reflect the commitment from leadership, staff unity, and particular strength of medical care in our ICU.”

Holy Redeemer Hospital’s Leapfrog safety scores in this round were also strong in billing ethics, prevention of hospital-associated infections, and medication safety.

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as 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. Grades are updated twice annually.

“An ‘A’ safety grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of the Leapfrog Group.
