High Marks For Some Connecticut Hospitals In Annual Safety Survey

Monday, December 13th, 2021 by | Posted In: Uncategorized

Each fall the Leapfrog Group releases a list of hospitals and grades them based on a set group of criteria.  This year, given the stress that was placed on hospital staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic the results were great for some area hospitals while others missed the mark.

While grades for hospitals don’t typically indicate whether you will be free from a Connecticut medical malpractice issue at that hospital they do give you an idea of which hospitals have been independently reviewed to give the best service.  

The fall survey took into account a hospital’s ability to protect patients from the following issues when they are admitted to the hospital;

  1. Preventable errors
  2. Accidents
  3. Injuries
  4. Infections

With this in mind the following Connecticut hospitals received an A grade in the survey;

The hospitals that received a B grade included;

C grades were given to the following hospitals;

Only two Connecticut hospitals were given D grades in the survey;

While these grades were given as service was being rendered during a pandemic it is an important starting point as you start to look at where you might like to have a procedure done.  If you believe that while being at one of these hospitals you may have experienced Connecticut medical malpractice, contact our office and our experienced legal and medical team will review your case.
