Safe Care

Several national research and patient care quality organizations have developed lists of practices that should result in better, safer, more effective care. Measures of “safe care” are collected by examining the percentage of patients who, during their stay, received specific care practices that have been shown to improve outcomes and comparing these percentages to national data.

Our Safe Care quality measures are:

Cardiovascular & Thoracic Care 


Leapfrog Group



Surgical Care

Other Safe Care Measures
