Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point nationally recognized with an ‘A” in fall 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

Pasco, Pinellas & Hillsborough, FL — Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021. This national distinction recognizes our hospital’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.

“Patient safety is our top priority when providing care to our community. Receiving the “A” grade validates our commitment to safety,” said Gina Temple, CEO Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. “I’m extremely proud of our Caregivers and the work they do every day to provide safe, high quality care to our community.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
