Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade consists of 27 measures that are in either one of two domains: (1) Process/Structural Measures or (2) Outcome Measures, each accounting for 50 percent of the overall score.

  • Process Measures represent how often a hospital gives patients recommended treatment for a given medical condition or procedure. For example, "Responsiveness of hospital staff" looks at patients' feedback on how long it takes for a staff member to respond when they request help.
  • Structural Measures represent the environment in which patients receive care. For example, "Doctors order medications through a computer" represents whether a hospital uses a special computerized system to prevent errors when prescribing medications.
  • Outcome Measures represent what happens to a patient while receiving care. For example, "Falls and Trauma" measures the number of times patients fell in the hospital and acquired an injury related to the fall.
