Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center was awarded an “A” in the Fall 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing the medical center’s achievements protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care.
This is the first time Davie Medical Center has had enough patient volume and measures to be included in this survey.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization driven by employers and other purchasers of health care committed to improving health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers.
“In the face of COVID-19 and all of the challenges put before us – we continue to be committed to our standard of excellence in all that we do. This score is yet another example of our patient and family centered high quality care we offer,” said Chad Brown, president of Davie Medical Center.
Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses a number of measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year.
“This grade represents our entire team, from support staff, to nurses, to providers, we are all accountable to provide great patient care and this is something we can be very proud of as a team,” said Kim Stanbery DNP, RN, NEA-BC, OCN, chief nursing officer at Davie Medical Center.
