25 CT hospitals decline to respond to Leapfrog quality survey
Only five CT hospitals reported quality and patient safety data to the Leapfrog Group this year – Bristol, Backus, Dempsey, Stamford and Windham hospitals. The hospitals that did report performed very well in general. Released this morning, the 2015 Leapfrog survey covers nineteen areas including maternity care, high risk surgeries, hospital acquired conditions and resource use. CT hospitals have not performed well in national quality rankings, including Medicare hospital readmission rates.
