WASHINGTON - This spring, Monroe Clinic received its seventh "A" safety grade since spring 2015 from the Leapfrog Group. The nonprofit organization, which releases its biannual Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades based on hospitals' record of patient safety, is located in the District of Columbia and is "committed to driving quality, safety, and transparency in the U.S. health system," according the group's website. Using 27 evidence-based measures of patient safety, the grading assigns "A," "B," "C," "D" and "F" letter grades to general acute-care hospitals in the U.S. and is the nation's only rating focused entirely on errors, accidents, injuries and infections, according to a Leapfrog news release.
