Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center Recognized with a ‘B’ In Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center has received a “B” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022, the highest Leapfrog safety grade of all hospitals in Prince George’s County. This national distinction recognizes Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital.

“This is wonderful news for our hospital and our team of caregivers who focus every day on prioritizing and improving quality and patient safety," said Deneen Richmond, president of Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center. "Our Leapfrog B grade shows that the initiatives we have put in place for quality and patient safety are working."

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“The commitment of our team to keep patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors is extraordinary,” said Dr. Sunil Madan, chief medical officer at Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center. “This recognition shows our patients and community that we always provide high quality, safe care.”
