CVHP hospital campuses have earned “A” ratings in a recently
released national report card on
patient safety. We are in the top 32% of hospitals in the nation. The Hospital
Safety Score is the gold standard rating for patient safety, compiled
under the guidance of the nation's leading patient safety experts
and administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national, independent nonprofit.
It is the first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in
the Journal of Patient Safety and the data is publicly available to consumers at
The Hospital Safety Score was developed under the guidance of Leapfrog's
Blue Ribbon Expert Panel and uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital
safety data to produce a single A, B, C, D, or F score, representing a
hospital's overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable
harm. More than 2,500 US general hospitals were assigned scores in October
2015, with 773 hospitals receiving an A grade.
