Today, The Leapfrog Group, a national non-profit organization that issues grades for safety in hospital patient care, released its fall 2022 grades. We are pleased to report that St. Bernard Hospital has improved to a “B” grade from the “F” we received a year ago and the “C” we received this spring.
Our steady, concentrated efforts to improve patient safety are bearing good results. At St. Bernard, we are committed to demonstrating that patient safety is our top concern.
We will continue our commitment to expansion of processes and tools that translate into safe, high-quality care which in turn will lead to us earning the best grade possible.
St. Bernard Hospital provides desperately needed care to residents from all over the South Side, and we are acutely aware of how important it is for our safety-net hospital to reach the patient safety goal of zero harm. We thank our patients and the community for your trust in the care we provide.
