2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award™

Congratulations to all of our MRMC Care Teams for being recognized by Healthgrades for excellence in patient safety!

According to Healthgrades, “The Patient Safety Excellence Award™ recognizes hospitals for how well a hospital prevents infections, medical errors, and other complications based on 14 serious, potentially preventable adverse events. Patients receiving care at Patient Safety Excellence Award recipient hospitals have, on average, a lower risk of experiencing patient safety events.”

Becker’s Hospital Review reports that 458 hospitals across the U.S. received the 2018 Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award, “which puts them in the top 10 percent of all short-term acute care hospitals that report patient safety data.” Becker’s goes on to state that “patient safety award recipients demonstrated excellent performance in safety for Medicare patients as measured by objective outcomes for 13 patient safety indicators, as defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.”
