Hospital Safety Scores

The Hospital Safety Score is an easy-to-use tool to help you find the safest care in your community. It can help guide your decision in a number of situations:

  • Do you know what hospital you would go to for an emergency?
  • Has your doctor referred you or a family member to a hospital for surgery?
  • Are you preparing to have a baby?
  • Is someone in your family suffering from chronic illness that could require immediate or consistent hospital care?
  • Is your choice of hospital solely based on location?
  • Are you sure the hospital you’re going to is safe?

The Hospital Safety Score grades hospitals on the very basics of medical care, such as handwashing, entering prescriptions through a computer, and the availability of nurses.

Source of Data:  The Hospital Safety Score uses national performance measures from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey and Health Information Technology Supplement.
