Kaiser Permanente California
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Nearly all Kaiser Permanente hospitals (pdf) have been given an A rating for patient safety — and none lower than a B — in a new national report card issued Wednesday by The Leapfrog Group. While Kaiser Permanente hospitals were rated among the safest in the country, hospitals nationwide fared far worse. Of the more than 2,600 hospitals that were graded in the report, nearly half (47 percent) received a C grade or lower. In California, it was a similar story. Of the 264 hospitals in California that were rated, 109 (or 41 percent) received a C grade or lower. The complete list of Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score results can be found at www.hospitalsafetyscore.org.
