For the second time in 2022, the Leapfrog Group recognized Bailey Medical Center as a top-performing hospital in patient safety across the country. BMC received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2022, the nation’s most prestigious honor for patient safety. The hospital also received an “A” for spring 2022.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns “A” through “F” grades to hospitals across the country based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as harm-prevention systems hospitals have in place. It’s the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients.
In the fall of 2022, only 10 hospitals in the entire state of Oklahoma achieved an “A” safety grade. This accomplishment highlights Bailey Medical Center’s dedication to patient safety and care and can only happen with the hard work each of our staff do every single day for our patients.
