Blanchard Valley Hospital was recently honored with an “A” grade in the Spring 2016 Hospital Safety Score. The score rates how well hospitals protect patients from errors, accidents, injuries, and infections. The score is compiled by medical experts and administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national, independent nonprofit.
The score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data and is the only peer-reviewed rating in the Journal of Patient Safety. More than 2,500 U.S. general hospitals were assigned scores in the Spring of 2016 with 798 of those hospitals receiving an “A” grade.
