Hospitals of Providence East, Sierra Only Local Hospitals to get “A” Rating for Patient Safety

The Hospitals of Providence East Campus and Sierra Campus have outscored five other El Paso-Las Cruces area hospitals in a nationwide assessment of medical errors, accidents, injuries and infections.

The “A”-rating for both hospitals came as part of the Hospital Safety Score study. The study, which examines more than 2,500 hospitals nationwide, bestowed a “B” rating on The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus.

The study is compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety and is administered by The Leapfrog Group (Leapfrog), an independent industry watchdog.

The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.

“Providing quality care in the safest possible environment is the focus at The Hospitals of Providence,” said Sally Hurt-Deitch, Market CEO at The Hospitals of Providence.  “This designation from The Leapfrog Group could not have been possible without the daily efforts our physicians, nurses, clinical and support teams make to maintain safe practices and to provide high quality care.”

“Patient safety and quality are central to everything we do at our hospitals.  We participate in this hospital safety survey as part of our commitment to transparency and to delivering quality patient care,” added Hurt-Deitch.

Calculated under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” score representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm.

To see how The Hospitals of Providence scores compares locally and nationally, and to access safety tips for patients and their loved ones, visit the Hospital Safety Score website at www.hospitalsafetyscore.org.  Consumers can also go to www.hospitalsafetyscore.org for a free download of the Hospital Safety Score app.
