How Do PA's Hospitals Perform Nationally?

Have you ever wondered how PA hospitals stack up in terms of areas like safety and standards of care? Well, you can check online at any time.  A website called The Hospital Safety Grade scores hospitals on how safe they keep their patients from medical errors and avoidable injuries, accidents, and infections. You can access the website here: http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org.   Although many hospitals in our area appear to meet a good quality standard of care, it is not universal across all locations. 

Hospital Safety Improves, But There's Still Work To Do

A report written by The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization dedicated to examining the U.S. healthcare system, wrote an article about hospital safety and hospitals that are improving their safety scores.  According to the article, which can be read in its entirety at http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org, over 700 participating hospitals received a safety score of "A" this year.  Many hospitals made drastic improvements, but over 150 earned a "D" or "F" score.   Although many hospitals improved their ratings within many measured areas of patient safety and care, other areas declined.  How do Pennsylvania's hospitals rate?
