The Leapfrog Group just released its fall 2017 Hospital Safety Grades, which score hospitals on how safe they keep their patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

Of the 2,632 hospitals graded in the launch, 832 earned an "A", 662 a "B", 964 a "C", 159 a "D" and 15 an "F".

"We're honored to be recognized by Leapfrog for the tremendous work that Mercy Joplin staff, nurses and physicians provide every day", said Gary Pulsipher, hospital president.

In the Columbia-Lexington area, only Lexington Medical Center was awarded a "B" score, dropping a letter grade from the spring rankings when it received an "A".

Developed under the guidance of a Blue Ribbon National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 USA hospitals twice per year.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.

"It takes consistent, unwavering dedication to patients to achieve the highest standards of patient safety".

The hospital claims Leapfrog lowered its grade for patient safety for allegedly only prescribing patient medications electronically 50 to 74 percent of the time.
