New Haven, CT - The Hospital of Saint Raphael has earned an “A” grade in safety from the Leapfrog Group, an organization that analyzes data on 26 separate healthcare quality measures. Saint Raphael’s was the only hospital in New Haven and one of only four in the state to earn an “A” grade.

Leapfrog gave Saint Raphael’s top marks on indicators including stroke care, timely sepsis treatment, the reduction of central line and surgical infections and fall prevention. Consumers can see the grades at the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score website, www.hospitalsafetyscore.org.

“We at Saint Raphael’s have spent a lot of resources developing a safe environment using evidence-based practices to make sure patients receive the best care possible,” said Jim Judson, R.N., director of Quality Improvement and Patient Relations. Saint Raphael’s Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Committee meets regularly to discuss the details of how to improve patient care and safety and implement new protocols.
