MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Coliseum Medical Centers just received a good grade from a national organization that grades patient safety and care quality.
Coliseum Medical Centers, Coliseum Northside and Fairview Park Hospital received A’s on their scores. The Leapfrog Organization uses data from patient experience scores, communication with staff, and if patients are getting infections or injuries under coliseum care.
“It’s a sense of pride in knowing that we’re taking great care of the people who come into our hospital, but we’re not satisfied with a single ‘A’ score. The real challenge now is to continue that,” Coliseum Medical Centers CEO Stephen Daugherty said.
He says Leapfrog is a volunteer program, meaning they want to be a part of it. Daugherty says they get scored by other agencies, too.
