    The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization committed to driving quality, safety, and transparency in the United States health care system, today released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide.

    “Delivering safe, high quality patient care is Eisenhower Medical Center’s commitment to our community,” says Christine Johnstone MHA, MSN, RN, PHN, Vice President , Quality and Performance Improvement, Eisenhower Medical Center. “We are proud to have received an ‘A’ from The Leapfrog Group, an organization with the toughest industry standards for quality and safety, transparency and continuous improvement in healthcare systems. It underscores the dedication and hard work of our physicians, nurses, leadership and staff and demonstrates substantial evidence of those efforts.”
     
    “Hospitals that earn top marks nationally in the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, ‘have achieved  the highest safety standards in the country,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “That takes commitment from every member of the hospital staff, who all deserve thanks and congratulations when their hospitals achieve an ‘A’ Safety Grade.” 
     
    Developed under the guidance of an Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year.
