TGMC Earns Another 'A' for Patient Safety

05/03/2016

Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) has once again received the ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety in Leapfrog’s Spring 2016 Hospital Safety Score.

 

An announcement released nationally by the independent hospital watchdog The Leapfrog Group, shows key shifts among many hospitals on the A, B, C, D and F grades rating them on errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. TGMC earned an A in this elite national ratings program, recognizing its strong commitment to patient safety. The Hospital Safety Score is the gold standard rating for patient safety, compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading patient safety experts and administered by the Leapfrog Group. As the first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Hospital Safety Score is designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.

 

More than 2,500 U.S. general hospitals were assigned scores in spring 2016, with TGMC receiving an A grade. The Hospital Safety Score is fully transparent, offering a full analysis of the data and methodology used in determining grades on the website.
