“We hope this ‘A’ helps to thank the people who work and volunteer for Fauquier Health,” Leapfrog Group President/CEO Leah Binder said.
Fauquier Health has received an “A” in the spring 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.

An independent national watchdog organization, The Leapfrog Group monitors health care quality and safety. It gives a letter grade to every general hospital across the country. Updated every six months, the grade assesses how well hospitals prevents medical errors and other harms to patients.

“We are proud to once again be recognized by The Leapfrog organization for receiving an ‘A’ grade,” Fauquier Health CEO Chad Melton said. “Receiving an A during the COVID-19 crisis is a testament to our team, for keeping patient care and quality at the center of what we do. Our board and medical staff have been instrumental in guiding the health system, on our journey on high quality, patient centered care.”

Leapfrog Group President/CEO Leah Binder said: “As the nation copes with a challenging pandemic, our gratitude extends to hospital leadership and health care workers everywhere for their tremendous dedication.

“We hope this ‘A’ helps to thank the people who work and volunteer for Fauquier Health. They are role models in putting patients first, and their service has been extraordinary in our country’s time of need.”

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. Peer-reviewed and transparent, the results are free to the public.

Fauquier Health received an “A” April 30, when Leapfrog updated grades.

This is better than normal news about Fauquier Hospital. In the past this hospital was well-known for patients contracting infections unrelated to their reason for admission.

They get an “F” for furloughing a large percentage of their employees during a pandemic. I consider healthcare workers first responders. That’s just For-Profit hospital’s for ya.
