Covenant HealthCare receives an “A” for providing extraordinary patient safety

Posted Date: 11/25/2012
Our devotion to providing you and your loved ones with the safest hospital stay, has earned us the only “A” grade in the region for patient safety, by The Leapfrog Group.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The Hospital Safety Score was created to help people make informed decisions about a critical aspect of a hospital stay – safety. The score was calculated under the guidance of The Leapfrog Group’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel using public information on patient injuries (such as bedsores), medical and medication errors, and infections. U.S. hospitals were then assigned an A, B, C, D, or F letter grade, reflecting how safe their hospitals are for patients.

While we are delighted with our grade, our real reward comes from providing extraordinary safe care to our patients each and every day. And we are committed to making the grade every year.
