Hospital Quality and Safety

Hospital safety is a top priority for some hospitals, but in others, patients suffer because of hospital errors, injuries, accidents and infections.  In fact, one out of every 25 hospital patients develops an infection that didn’t have to happen, and each day, as many as 1,000 people die because of a preventable hospital error. ¹

NEBGH partners with The Leapfrog Group to drive a movement toward hospital transparency on behalf of you – so that employers, employees and their families know whether a hospital is safe and provides quality care.

 

  • We distribute the Leapfrog Hospital Survey to more than 130 hospitals in NYS and CT – urging them to supply critical data
  • It’s the gold standard for measuring quality, safety and continuous improvement that saves lives
  • We promote Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grades – so consumers can quickly compare safety among hospitals
  • If a hospital isn’t safe, nothing else matters
