See fall 2017 safety grades for 77 MI hospitals

If you would like to see how your hospital measures up, you can see the grades for every Washington hospital here.

The Leapfrog Group announced today the Fall 2017 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, assigning A, B, C, D and F letter grades to more than 2,600 USA hospitals based on medical errors, accidents, injuries and infections.

There were no reported F grades in the entire state.

Of the 44 hospitals that were graded, only one hospital received an "A", Howard County General Hospital.

Nineteen of 77 MI hospitals received an "A" grade in the fall 2017 report card by The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog organization.

All six Greenville County hospitals scored A's for patient safety from a national nonprofit organization that calls attention to deaths and injuries that result from medical errors.

By contrast, Virginia ranked among the top the five states this fall. Washington hospitals ranged from A-D. Harborview Medical Center got a "B" and two hospitals - Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles and Deaconess Hospital in Spokane - got "D" grades.

Almost half of New Jersey's hospitals earned an "A" in the latest national safety report measuring how effective nurses, doctors and other medical staff are in preventing infections, falls and mistakes than often make patients sicker than they arrived.

MI ranks 36th in the country for percentage of "A" hospitals - only 19 of the 77 hospitals in the state were given an A.
