Skiff gets good marks for hospital safety
An Iowa hospital patient advocacy group has released its newest set of safety scores for hospitals across the state. Skiff Medical Center in Newton scored higher than most medical facilities in the report.
The Iowa Health Buyers Alliance, which works to improve health and health care in a patient-centered health system, released the updated Hospital Safety Scores Wednesday afternoon. The grading system — A through F — is the product of The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization of employer purchasers of health care and the nation’s leading experts on patient safety.
The Hospital Safety Score is based on infections, injuries and medical and medication errors. It is calculated under the guidance of a panel of patient safety experts by measuring 26 pieces of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall performance in patient safety.
