Leapfrog posts confidential updated safety grades for hospitals

November 21, 2012

The Leapfrog Group today posted for hospitals' review letter grades associated with the updated hospital safety scores it plans to release to the public later this month. Critical access hospitals, Maryland hospitals, specialty hospitals, mental health hospitals, pediatric hospitals and federal hospitals are excluded from the grades and scores, which were posted to the website last week. All other hospitals are urged to review their updated scores and grades at www.leapfroggroup.org/data-validation/hospital_data_review using the username and passwords they received in October.
