Loma Linda University Medical Center and East Campus hospitals received their 8th and 9th consecutive “A” safety ratings, respectively, from the Leapfrog Group for fall 2022. This national distinction recognizes Loma Linda University Health’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital.
“This recognition is yet another great tribute to our team’s commitment to putting our patients first,” said Trevor Wright, CEO of Loma Linda University Health hospitals. “This modeling of compassionate service and excellence shows our patients continue to receive nationally rated healthcare services close to home.”
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 over 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 harm 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.
