Leapfrog Group Award
#1 in Mississippi for patient safety. Again.
When it comes to patient safety, Baptist Golden Triangle is the only hospital in Mississippi that's earned straight A's since 2012 for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group®. We are one of only 59 hospitals in the country to have earned this distinction.
The Hospital Safety Score measures 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.
