How Safe is Your Hospital?

State Rankings

Does your state make the grade? Hospitals across the country show great variation when it comes to patient safety. Here states are ranked based on the percentage of “A” hospitals they have compared to the total number of hospitals that operate in that state. Maryland is not ranked because hospitals are not required to publicly report their hospital safety data.
