Maury Regional

Maury Regional Medical Center was awarded an ‘A’ in the fall 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing MRMC’s achievements protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care, according to a release.

 

This is the 12th consecutive reporting period in which MRMC earned an ‘A’ rating.

“To ensure that we offer outstanding care to our patients, we are committed to continually measuring and monitoring our performance across national patient safety measures,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Alan Watson. “This consistent ‘A’ rating is reflective of the commitment of our employees, physicians and volunteers to ensure the safety of those who entrust us with their health care needs.”

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization driven by employers and other purchasers of health care committed to improving health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers.

The Safety Grade assigns an ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’ or ‘F’ grade to all general hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.

“‘A’ hospitals show us their leadership is protecting patients from preventable medical harm and error,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes genuine commitment at every level – from clinicians to administrators to the board of directors – and we congratulate the teams who have worked so hard to earn this A.”

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
