Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Awarded “A” Grade for Safety

DOVER, NH – Wentworth-Douglass Hospital awarded an “A” grade for safety Wednesday by the Leapfrog Group, an independent, national not-for-profit watchdog organization.
The Leapfrog Group assigns letter grades, ranging from “A” to “F,” to general hospitals throughout the United States. The grades are based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries, and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public.

"We are once again deeply honored to receive this 'A' grade from the Leapfrog Group, which reflects the unwavering dedication of our staff to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients,” said Wentworth-Douglass president and chief operating officer Darin Roark. “At Wentworth-Douglass, we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving our community with excellence and I’m proud that this is yet another example of that."

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. Safety Grade results are updated each fall and spring.

“Everyone who works at Wentworth-Douglass should be proud of this ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of the Leapfrog Group. “It takes complete dedication of at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank Wentworth-Douglass, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”
