ROSWELL, November 16, 2022 —Lovelace Regional Hospital (LRH) received an “A” safety grade in the Fall 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade report, a national distinction recognizing its achievements protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital. This is the fourth safety grade “A” in a row for LRH.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to all general hospitals across the country based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
“The Leapfrog grade is important because it gives patients objective criteria they need to make a decision on which hospital is the safest,” said Lovelace Regional Hospital Interim Chief Executive Officer Mark Gregson. “The entirety of our hospital, from our physicians to our staff, are committed to patient safety and we pride ourselves on adherence to the measures associated with the Hospital Safety Grade. Quality and patient safety are a constant focus and it’s nice to be recognized for our hard work.”
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms 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.
Lovelace Regional Hospital is the only hospital in the Southeast of New Mexico to earn an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for Fall 2022.
