Greenwich Hospital awarded “A” Hospital Safety Grade

Wednesday, November 16, 2022

Greenwich, CT (Nov. 16, 2022) – Greenwich Hospital received an "A" grade as one of the safest hospitals in the United States, according to The Leapfrog Group, an independent national patient safety watchdog group.

“This national distinction reflects our ongoing commitment to create the safest environment for our patients,” said Diane Kelly, DNP, president of Greenwich Hospital. “We foster a culture of safety through daily safety huddles with senior staff, unit-based safety coaches and hospital-wide quality safety rounds conducted by our leaders.”

Greenwich Hospital has a long tradition of patient safety. All staff, physicians and volunteers complete high reliability training adapted from the aviation and other high-risk industries. Another safety initiative includes a video falls risk monitoring program.

Two Yale New Haven Health hospitals – Greenwich Hospital and Westerly Hospital in Rhode Island - received an "A" grade for patient safety.

The Leapfrog Group’s hospital safety grades are based on more than 28 measures of publicly available safety data to assign grades from “A” to “F” to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The grades reflect a hospital’s ability to prevent errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as improve patient satisfaction.
