SMH Receives Straight A’s Again for Patient Safety

Business

The Leapfrog Group’s Hospital Safety report cards were released today, and Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Sarasota Campus continued its straight-A streak for keeping patients safe from medical errors, infections, accidents and other harm to patients in their care. The Leapfrog Group assigns hospitals across the nation A, B, C, D or F safety grades in the spring and fall of each year, to help patients choose the safest hospitals for their care. The safety grades are based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting quality and safety data, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.SMH-Sarasota has earned straight A’s since it began participating in Leapfrog’s voluntary hospital safety survey in 2016. Of the nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals graded in the Fall 2021 report card, 32 percent earned an A, 26 percent earned a B, 35 percent earned a C, 6 percent a D and less than 1 percent received an F. Sarasota Memorial Health Care System Chief Medical Officer James Fiorica, MD, said the hospital’s continued high marks demonstrate the dedication and diligence of the entire team.
