CT hospital info scarce on new rating site

The Leapfrog Group, a national leader in improving the quality and value of health care, has released a new web tool comparing hospitals on patient safety performance. Unfortunately, only two CT hospitals responded to the Leapfrog survey – Sharon and Backus Hospitals. Both did very well in two areas including managing serious errors; both needed work in other areas. But we commend their willingness to measure and improve quality, and to trust the public with the information. Non-responding CT hospitals included Bridgeport, Danbury, Greenwich, Griffin, Midstate, Milford, New Milford, Norwalk, St. Mary’s, St. Raphael’s, St. Vincent’s, Stamford, Charlotte Hungerford, Waterbury, and Yale New Haven.
