(The Center Square) – The percentage of 'A' ranked hospitals in Utah dipped slightly, but the Beehive State has managed to maintain its buzz as one of the top states in the nation for hospital safety, a recent report indicates.According to the Fall 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade rankings, Utah held on to its 3rd-in-the-nation ranking for safety in its medical institutions, even after the percentage of its high-ranked hospitals declined from 55.6% to 51.9% in its most recent evaluation.Conducted bi-annually, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses an expert panel of physicians to evaluate the overall safety in 3,000 hospitals across the nation based on three metrics: process, structural and outcome measures.
