Press Release: The Leapfrog Group to Report on Hospitals Demonstrating Nursing Excellence

In recognition of a growing body of studies highlighting the key role nurses' play in patient safety, The Leapfrog Group announced they will publicly report on hospitals that have demonstrated nursing excellence on Leapfrog's annual hospital survey. Making the announcement at AARP's Champion Nursing Council and Coalition Meeting in Washington, D.C., Leapfrog's CEO Leah Binder stated, "With this addition to our annual survey, Leapfrog is recognizing the vital role nurses play in patient safety and their strong commitment to transparency. As I visit hospitals across the country, I am constantly finding that the highest performing hospitals, many of Leapfrog's Top Hospitals, have earned the prestigious recognition of Magnet® and nurses are the most vocal supporters of making patient safety and quality information transparent. Our employer members value this designation, and its implications for safety, and believe hospitals deserve recognition when they achieve it."
