HCA Virginia Hospitals have been recognized in the spring 2016 Hospital Safety Score, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from errors, injuries and infections. New Hospital Safety Scores, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provide the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system, recently were announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. Henrico Doctors’, John Randolph Medical Center, and Retreat Doctors’ all received an A ranking, and were among 798 hospitals in the country to earn this honor. For the first time, the Hospital Safety Score includes five measures of patient-reported experience with the hospital as well as two of the most common infections, C.diff and MRSA. Developed under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
