Once Again, Inland Hospital Earns Straight A's

Release Date: 05/01/2017

Inland Hospital is pleased to announce that once again we have received another "A" rating from the Leapfrog Group; giving us straight A's since the Hospital Safety Score was created in 2012 - one of only 63 hospitals in the nation to achieve this honor! This grade is the gold standarad rating for patient safety and quality, and one of the most meaningful honors a hospital can achieve. Ratings are released in the spring and fall.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the first and only national care rating focused on errors, accidents, and infections. The program has been assigning A, B, C, D, and F letter grades to general acute-care hospitals in the U.S. since 2012. As a result, Leapfrog notes there have been significant strides nationwide in improving patient safety, such as a 21 percent decline in hospital acquired conditions, increased adoption and improved functionality of computerized physician order entry systems, and millions of averted patient harms.
