Leapfrog Group Awards Area Hospital Safety Scores

By Staff Reports, posted Jun 4, 2021
The Leapfrog Group recently gave Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center an A letter grade in its spring hospital safety grades. New Hanover Regional Medical Center received a B grade in the same report.
 
The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit that evaluates the safety and patient experience provided by hospitals across the country. The grades – from A to F – are assigned to U.S. hospitals “based on their ability to prevent errors, injuries, accidents and infections, and improve patient satisfaction,” according to a news release.
 
Novant Health, which now owns both local hospitals, said the data reflects the health system’s approach to care.
 
“Our physicians, nurses, advanced practice clinicians, pharmacists and clinical team members work together every day to reduce our hospital-associated infection rates to historic lows,” Eric Eskioglu, executive vice president and chief medical and scientific officer for Novant Health, said in the release. “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our teams remained committed to providing the highest quality of care while prioritizing safety for not only our patients, but for our team members.”
