FL Number Three In Nation For Hospital Safety


Florida hospitals rank number three in the nation overall for patient safety.

A new Leapfrog Group study says more than half of Sunshine State medical centers get an “A” grade.

The report uses information from the Centers for Disease Control and the Agency for Healthcare Research to determine how well patients are protected from medical mistakes.

Chief among the criteria–hand hygiene, doctor and nurse staffing, and how quickly patients get antibiotics.
