Bristol Hospital is proud to once again earn an “A” for patient safety from the Leapfrog Group, a national group that rates hospitals on how well they keep their patients safe from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
Providing our patients with the safest, highest-quality care is our number one priority – and it shows. We are the only hospital in Connecticut to receive five consecutive A’s since 2017, making us a “Straight A” hospital.
Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
