Floyd earns an ‘A’ in spring patient safety scoring; ‘Bs’ for area’s three other hospitals.

Leapfrog Group has awarded Floyd Medical Center with a top-rated “A” grade on its spring 2022 patient safety report card. The three other area hospitals each were rated “B.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. Leapfrog assigns A-F grades to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“This award is a testimony to the outstanding care and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Floyd Medical Center,” said Kurt Stuenkel, president and CEO of Atrium Health Floyd. “It is also appropriate that it is being announced during Nurses Week, since they play such a large role in our success.”
