Milford Regional Earns ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety in April 2016 Hospital Safety Score

New Hospital Safety Scores, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provide the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system, were announced today by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. Milford Regional Medical Center was one of 798 hospitals to receive an A, ranking among the safest hospitals in the United States. Milford Regional has received four consecutive A's for safety since 2014.

“Patient safety is a top priority for everyone that works at Milford Regional,” says Edward J. Kelly, president & CEO of Milford Regional. “Receiving an ‘A’ grade from Hospital Safety Score for the fourth consecutive time affirms our efforts to provide patients with care that is both high quality and safety focused. I want to commend our physicians and staff whose commitment to safety brought us this national recognition.”

“Avoidable deaths in hospitals should be the number one concern of our health care leaders. Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ from Leapfrog are leaders in saving lives, and we commend them and urge their continued vigilance,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.

Developed under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. For the first time, the Hospital Safety Score includes five measures of patient-reported experience with the hospital as well as two of the most common infections, C.diff and MRSA.
