Contributed

FAYETTEVILLE – Nov. 7, 2019 –  Cape Fear Valley Health has earned an A grade for patient safety for the Fall 2019 ratings period. The health system has received A grades for four straight reporting periods.

The grade was announced this month in The Leapfrog Group’s Hospital Safety Score biannual ratings survey. The ratings system is considered the gold standard for Patient Safety. It is the first and only hospital rating system to be peer-reviewed by the Journal of Patient Safety.

The Leapfrog survey reviews 28 publicly available safety data measurements from more than 2,600 acute care hospitals nationwide to produce a single A, B, C, D or F score for each facility. The grades represent a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm.
