A national patient safety survey has given top marks to three N.H. hospitals and downgraded four others.
The Leapfrog Group, which describes itself as an independent, not-for-profit organization, downgraded four hospitals this spring compared to their grades last fall. That includes Exeter Hospital, Frisbie Memorial in Rochester, St. Joseph's in Nashua and Concord Hospital.
Three hospitals received an "A": Portsmouth Regional Hospital, Parkland Medical Center in Derry, and Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua. Nationally, N.H. rates 31st on patient safety while Maine took the top spot and Massachusetts was second from the top. Review the survey results here.
