“We Made the Grade” at Southwest General Hospital
Date:6/20/2013

San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Southwest General Hospital was recognized with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety ScoreSM, the A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety. The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety (April 2013), Hospital Safety Score is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.

“We are one of only two facilities in a city of 1.7 million people to earn this esteemed rating,” says CEO Craig Desmond. “Southwest General Hospital is also the only hospital in San Antonio to earn the DNV ISO 9001:2008 certification for Quality as well. This ‘A’ rating proves we are making positive changes for the benefit of our patients.”

“Earning an ‘A’ on the Hospital Safety Score demonstrates that this hospital has exhibited excellence in our national database of patient safety measures,” said Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I’d like to congratulate Southwest General Hospital for your achievements and encourage you to continue to put a priority on the safety of your patients.”

“We are thrilled to see that our efforts toward delivering quality patient care are coming to fruition,” said Dr. Sarah Humme, RN, CNO/COO at Southwest General Hospital. “The clinical staff, physicians and support staff have all been working diligently to ensure our patients receive the quality care they deserve. It’s equally rewarding to see these efforts recognized by our peers.”
