Hospital Safety Grade.

Leapfrog Group; Austin M; Derk J

Drawing from data reported by the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), this website provides grades for hospitals in the United States based on their safety. The 2018 results are the sixth generation of the scores, which now include a medication error score. A related report from the Armstrong Institute examines avoidable death associated with grading hospitals.
