Good Samaritan Nationally Recognized with an ‘A’ Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

Good Samaritan received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022. The national distinction recognizes Good Samaritan’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital.

“This achievement represents the dedication of our caregivers who strive every day to provide safe, quality care,” said Angela Shick, Director of Quality and Risk at Good Samaritan. “They are instrumental to maintaining a safe environment and putting process in place to prevent infection or injury. I am extremely proud and happy they have been recognized.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on more than thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“As our health care system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of Good Samaritan for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
