All 3 Hospitals Receive 2018 Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award™

All three Jefferson Health – New Jersey hospitals were recently honored with the 2018 Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award™, which recognizes hospitals for their excellent performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stay. To win this award, a hospital must be in the top 10% in the nation for patient safety.

Healthgrades’ methodology uses inpatient data from the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) database and software from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to measure how well hospitals prevent injuries, infections and other serious conditions based on 14 serious, potentially preventable adverse events.
