Little Company of Mary Hospital (LCMH) is proud to announce that they received another top safety score since June 2012. An  “A” Grade Hospital Safety Score was issued again to LCMH from the Leapfrog Group for outstanding quality and safety measures. Leapfrog is a nonprofit group looking to improve the quality and safety of healthcare and works to encourage transparency and easy access to healthcare information as well as rewards for hospitals that have a proven record of high-quality care. Only 48 of 117 Illinois hospitals received an “A.”

 

“Receiving another top “A” Grade Hospital Safety Score further validates our commitment to the quality and safety of our patients, “ said Dennis Reilly, President and CEO of Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health care Centers.

 

For 2,651 hospitals nationwide, Leapfrog created a grading system for hospitals based on 26 different measures that range from adherence to safe practices to hospitals’ records of mishaps. The weight of each measure is determined based on evidence, opportunity for improvement, and impact.

 

Leapfrog’s information comes from two sources: its own surveys of hospitals and data collected from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in which hospitals earn a letter grade based on these safety measures. Scores of a C generally go to hospitals

 

scoring below national averages on these measures while an “A” grade goes to hospitals

that well exceeded national averages. This grading system gives consumers a glimpse of what is going on behind hospital doors before selecting a hospital.
