CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck has received the highest safety rating in the region by the Leapfrog Group for spring 2020. The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization committed to improving health care quality and safety.
“The Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Award recognizes how safe CHI St. Alexius Health keeps patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections. We are proud to consistently receive this high-grade rating of a ‘B’ from The Leapfrog Group,” said Kurt Schley, CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck President. “Our medical staff, associates and key partners continue to be recognized nationally for their hard work and dedication to ensure safe, high quality care for every patient we serve.”
The Leapfrog Group “grades” hospitals A-F on their safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 28 national performance measures from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and information from other supplemental data sources. Taken together, those performance measures produce a single letter grade representing a hospital’s overall performance in keeping patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors.
“Keeping our patients safe is our top priority,” stated Dr. Lisa Laurent, CHI St. Alexius Health’s Chief Medical Officer. “Congratulations to our team for putting patients and safety first. We work together as a team to implement best practices to achieve the best patient experience.”
