When it comes to patient safety, Baptist North Mississippi gets an 'A'.
Baptist North Mississippi recently earned an ‘A' from the Leapfrog Group's 2016 Hospital Safety Score survey. Developed by Leapfrog's Blue Ribbon Expert Panel of patient safety experts, the Hospital Safety Score measures 30 safety data and ranks more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice each year.
The results are peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
The Hospital Safety Scores measure patient-reported experiences with a hospital in specific areas such as:
- Communication about medicines
- Communications with nurses and doctors
- The responsiveness of the hospital staff
Leapfrog also considers how a hospital handles two of the most common hospital infections: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C. diff).
Founded in 2000 by large employers and other purchasers, The Leapfrog Group® is a national nonprofit organization driving a movement for giant leaps forward in the quality and safety of American health care.
