AnMed nationally recognized with an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade
AnMed received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021. The national distinction recognizes AnMeds achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.
(Anderson, S.C. – November 10, 2021) – “At AnMed, patient care and safety are priorities. “Everybody, including physicians, nurses, as well as all of our support staff and volunteers has a hand in the process of making sure we’re doing the greatest job taking care of our patients,” said Jennifer Weeks, AnMed director of system quality.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization. It assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents, and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital rating program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and injuries 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.
