Another "A" Hospital Safety Score for Thorek Memorial Hospital

Posted: 5/15/2014

We are proud to announce we've been recognized with another "A" Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The A Score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety Score; the A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to the U.S. hospitals are based on preventable medical errors, injuries accidents and infections.

The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation's leading experts on patient safety. The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety (April 2013), Hospital Safety Score is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.
