Another Top Score in Patient Safety for
Annie Penn Hospital
This is the 6th straight “A” for patient safety earned by
the hospital.
Annie Penn Hospital has received an “A” grade in
the spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent watchdog
organization committed to health care quality and
safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns an
“A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to all general hospitals
across the country and is updated every six months.
This is the sixth consecutive “A” for Annie Penn
Hospital. “Avoiding infections, falls and medication
mix-ups are signs of high-quality health care,” says
Annie Penn Hospital President Cindy Farrand. “And it
is very reassuring to know that some of the safest care
anywhere is right here in our own backyard—right here in
Reidsville.”
Developed under the guidance of a national expert
panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to
27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data
to assign grades to more than 2,700 U.S. acute-care
hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s
methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and
the results are free to the public.
“An ‘A’ safety grade is an elite designation that your
community should be proud of,” says Leah Binder,
president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “The past
year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but
Annie Penn Hospital shows us it is possible to keep a
laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what
it takes.”
