The Hospital Safety Score, a letter grade rating of how safe hospitals are for patients, is a public service provided by The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization committed to driving quality, safety, and transparency in U.S. health care. Twice annually more than 2,500 hospitals across the nation are assigned a grade based on how well they prevent medical errors, injuries, accidents, and infections while caring for their patients.

This app is an easy-to-use tool to help you find the safest care in your community. Once at a hospital, use the app to help guide a conversation with your doctor, making sure you ask questions related to safety that can protect yourself or loved ones during a hospital stay.
