'A' In Patient Safety
The LeapFrog Group
We've made the grade! For three consecutive years, we have received an 'A' on our patient safety report card. TriStar Greenview was honored in Fall 2018 by The LeapFrog Group for publicly reporting quality metrics that reflect how we keep our patients safe from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
Our 'A' is compiled from 27 different national patient safety categories and scored on an 'A' - 'F' scale. The Leapfrog Group's grading rubric is based on items such as responsiveness, documenting prescription orders and hand hygiene, to name a few.
Patient Safety Excellence Award™
In 2017 & 2018, we were also recognized by Healthgrades® as Patient Safety Excellence Award™ recipient. TriStar Greenview is in the top five percent of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data.
This means you're less likely to experience hospital-acquired infections and injuries than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals. To learn more, read the Healthgrades® methodology for performance ratings.
Five-Stars in Cardiac & Orthopedic Care
As a 2017-2018 recipient of multiple Five-Star Ratings, Healthgrades® indicates that TriStar Greenview’s clinical outcomes are statistically better than expected when treating cardiac or orthopedic care conditions.
This means our patients are less likely to experience complications during their hospital stay than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals.
