Leapfrog does not grade VA hospitals, specialty hospitals or children’s hospitals, so several local hospitals were not included in the rankings.
Leapfrog states that while every person will have a different idea about what is most important to them, it suggests seeing how a hospital scores on:
Hand washing: Does your hospital have a hand washing policy to ensure all staff members are washing their hands before and after patient contact?
MORE: New home on VA campus will allow families to stay for free
Infection in the blood: Hospital patients may be given a central line (a tube inserted into the body to deliver medication and other treatments). Patients with a central line are at high risk for developing a dangerous infection in the blood. Is your hospital showing a low number on this measure?
Patient falls: What is your hospital doing to ensure you don't suffer an added injury from a fall while in the hospital?
