WHEELING, W.Va. -- Wheeling hospital announced Monday it has received an ‘A’ from the Leapfrog Group for Patient Safety.
This grade was issued as a part of the organization’s annual Hospital Safety Score Initiative. Earlier this year, the hospital was named one of the nation's 100 safest by the National Healthcare Safe Care Group. Wheeling Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr. Angelo Georges said keeping patients safe is something they work on every day.
“To receive an A is a very rare thing,” he said. “And it makes me very proud no one wants to come into a hospital with one problem and pick up another, so we've taken some efforts here to prevent infections and this is kind of the first of our reward."
Wheeling Hospital is the only A-rated hospital in the Upper Ohio River Valley Region. You can go check out the scores at: http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org
