Connecticut Hospitals Rank 30th Overall in National Safety Report

See fall 2017 safety grades for 77 Michigan hospitals

This was done in accordance with the specifications used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for hospitals nationwide, resulting in Maryland Safety Grades being reported this fall.

Over 120 hospitals were graded in Pennsylvania and 38 were awarded an "A". Sixty percent of hospitals in the state got A grades from the national health care nonprofit Leapfrog, which studied data from the American Hospital Association and other sources.

SC ranked 13 among the 50 states, based on the number of hospitals that earned an "A" compared to the total number of hospitals in the state.

Austin Boutain has connections to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Mississippi, Utah and Alabama, said Harvey, who did not elaborate. The SLCPD tweeted late Tuesday morning that the mountain search was complete and that Boutain had not been located.

No Maryland hospitals in the D.C. area got F grades, and one got an A. The grades are calculated by patient-safety experts, peer-reviewed and available to everyone free of charge.

Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades from A to F are assigned to more than 2,600 general acute-care hospitals across the nation twice annually.

Go here to see the full list of hospital grades and rankings. "We commend the Maryland Health Care Commission for their leadership, which was instrumental in getting Leapfrog the data needed to issue these grades". The five states with the lowest percentage of A-grade hospitals are Washington, D.C., North Dakota, Delaware, Maryland and NY.

Thunder charter plane dented en route to Chicago, lands safely
A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Thunder told The Oklahoman newspaper that all of its players, staff and coaches were safe. Kiwi basketball star Steven Adams' plane came out badly in a mid-air incident en route to Chicago in the US.

Binder said states with consistently good hospital grades show a state-wide, collaborative commitment to patient safety. "We congratulate the clinicians, board members, management and staff of St. Catherine Hospital for showing the country what it means to put patient safety first".

One state appears on the state rankings for the first time today, the state of Maryland. Rita Numerof, president and co-founder of consultancy Numerof & Associates, said "There should be no correlation between safety rates and socioeconomic status." de Brantes agreed, saying hospitals can control the processes in place to ensure the care they provide is safe.

The upshot is that Philly's number of "A" hospitals dropped to five.
