Shelby Baptist Medical Center Receives an “A” for Patient Safety in Spring 2018 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

Alabaster, AL (May 1, 2018) – By achieving an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, Shelby Baptist Medical Center receives recognition as one of the safest hospitals in the United States. The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog, assigns “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” and “F” letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provides the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S.

“With our high standard of safety and commitment to quality care at Shelby Baptist Medical Center, we are so proud to achieve this distinguished award,” said Brookwood Baptist Health chief executive officer, Keith Parrott. “This designation is a testament to our patients that we are providing them with the highest level of safety and care every day when they come into our hospital.”

“Hospitals like these that earn an A have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I congratulate Shelby Baptist Medical Center for their safety excellence, and look forward to the day when all hospitals will match this standard.”

To see Shelby Baptist Medical Center’s scores as they compare nationally and locally, visit the Hospital Safety Score website at www.hospitalsafetyscore.org, which also provides information on how the public can protect themselves and loved ones during a hospital stay.

Calculated under the guidance of The Leapfrog Group’s nine-member Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 26 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from infections, injuries, and medical and medication errors.
