In a recent nationwide report known as the Hospital Safety Score, The Leapfrog Group awarded Archbold's Grady General Hospital a grade of 'A' for the hospital's performance based on patient outcomes.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit organization, uses a grading system of A, B, C, D and F to rate hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
"Patients who enter our doors know that our team of physicians and clinicians will provide high-quality and safe care," said Crystal Wells, administrator at Archbold's Grady General Hospital. "It's rewarding to see our staff's efforts recognized nationally, and I'm so proud of what our team has accomplished."
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and accessible to the public.
