On Wednesday, the Leapfrog Group released its 2024 Hospital Safety Grades. The nonprofit assigns letter grades, “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F,” to nearly 3,000 general hospitals across the country.

"The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. It is fully transparent and free to the public," Leapfrog states.

The grades are based on "how well they prevent medical errors, accidents and infections."
