Lovelace Medical Center, Lovelace Women’s Hospital and Lovelace Regional Hospital received an “A” safety grade in the spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade report, according to a press release from Lovelace.

The report is a national distinction recognizing the facilities’ achievements protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections, the release states.

It is the second safety grade “A” in a row for LMC and LWH.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. It assigns grades to general hospitals across the country and is updated every six months. It is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospitals’ prevention of medical errors and other harms to patients in their care.

Lovelace Health System chief executive officer Ron Stern said, “The entirely of our hospitals, from our physicians to our staff, are committed to patient safety and we pride ourselves on the adherence to the measures associated with the Hospital Safety Grade. Quality and patient safety are a constant focus and it’s nice to be recognized for our hard work.”
