Leapfrog holds a 3-week Courtesy Safety Grade Review Period for hospitals via the Safety Grade Review Website and a 2-week Letter Grade Embargo Period prior to the release of the Hospital Safety Grade. By accessing the Safety Grade Review Website, hospitals will be able to:
- Review the source data used to calculate the hospital’s numerical score.
- Download an updated copy of the Hospital Safety Grade calculator and the Scoring Methodology.
- Preview the hospital’s numerical score and confidential Hospital Safety Grade.
Hospitals that are eligible to receive a Hospital Safety Grade will receive a username and password on the date that the 3-week Courtesy Safety Grade Review Period opens. The username and password is sent either via email or mail, depending on whether or not the hospital submitted a Leapfrog Hospital Survey by the data snapshot date.
