Genesis Medical Center, Davenport Awarded Highest Grade For Patient Safety
Genesis Medical Center, Davenport has received an “A” grade, the top safety grade in the Quad Cities, from Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. This national distinction recognizes Genesis achievement in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which your community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of Genesis Medical Center for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
“To earn the top grade in the middle of the worst public health crisis in more than 100 years is a tribute to the care, compassion and dedication of medical providers and Genesis staff,” said Jordan Voigt, president of Genesis Medical Center, Davenport. “The disruptions created by the Coronavirus have not disrupted the constant goal of providing the safest care possible for patients.”
