When a medical emergency arises, we all want the best care for our family members. Do you know how your local hospital ranks in patient safety ? Furthermore, what if a family member needs medical care in a hospital while on vacation? How would you know which hospital is the best place for your loved one to receive treatment and heal? Thanks to technology, there’s an app for that!
Hospital Safety Score App From Leapfrog, Inc.
Download the Hospital Safety Score App from the iTunes or Google Play, or log on to www.hospitalsafetyscore.com. Then by simply entering a hospital name or city and state, users can research hospital patient safety ratings. The Leapfrog Group analyzed 26 nationally-used safety benchmarks to come up with an overall letter grade score for hospitals across the nation. I was surprised with how some of my local hospitals faired.
The Hospital Safety Score App and website make it easy to find a load of patient resources from driving directions to a given hospital to advice on how to plan your next hospital stay.
