Kaiser Permanente Hospitals Again Among the Nation’s Safest

04/29/2015 | UCare
According to the Leapfrog Group’s just-released Hospital Safety Scores, 81 percent of Kaiser Permanente hospitals received an “A” grade, while nationally only 30 percent of non-Kaiser Permanente hospitals received an “A.” The Hospital Safety Score is an analysis based on 28 variables, including rates of infections, medication mix-ups and health care-acquired injuries. It uses data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the American Hospital Association and its own Leapfrog survey.
