See fall 2017 safety grades for 77 Michigan hospitals

This was done in accordance with the specifications used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for hospitals nationwide, resulting in Maryland Safety Grades being reported this fall. For example, the report showed CT had seven hospitals that received "A" grades, four hospitals that got a "B" grade and 13 hospitals that received "C" grades. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is created to help consumers protect themselves and their families from errors, injuries, accidents and infections. "Not only does it require dedication from national organizations, such as Leapfrog, to make this information public, but also from local coalitions, regional leaders, employers, business leaders and other community organizations to work with these hospitals and their communities to improve the quality and safety of health care".

No hospitals in Washington D.C. earned an "A".

There were no reported F grades in the entire state. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed and fully transparent.

Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades from A to F are assigned to more than 2,600 general acute-care hospitals across the nation twice annually. You can see the specific grades here for CT.

"Receiving our third consecutive "A" grade demonstrates Coastal Carolina Hospital's commitment to delivering safe, high-quality patient care", Joel Taylor, CEO of Coastal Carolina Hospital, said in a press release.

Buffallo Bills trade DT Marcell Dareus to Jacksonville Jaguars
The fact that the Bills got rid of Dareus isn't a complete surprise, as the team had been looking to dump him for several weeks. It later became known that he missed the team buses taking the Bills from their hotel to M&T Bank Stadium for the game.

In September, Coastal Carolina andHilton Head hospitals both received four Certified Zero Harm Awards at the annual South Carolina Medical Association/South Carolina Hospital Association Trustee, Administrator and Physician Conference. Leapfrog measured things like preventable infections, patient satisfaction, and systems in place to prevent mistakes. But the state agency has a full consumer report of all the in hospitals available on its website. The five states with the lowest percentage of A-grade hospitals are North Dakota, Washington D.C., Delaware, Maryland and NY.

Based on that data, Leapfrog measures 27 aspects of patient health and safety.

One state appears on the state rankings for the first time today, the state of Maryland.

Coastal Carolina Hospital scored a "C" from spring 2014 through spring 2016, but jumped up to an "A" on the last three reports.

The report graded twenty-five hospitals in CT.
