Leapfrog Group Award

#1 in Mississippi for patient safety. Again.

Baptist Golden Triangle is the only hospital in Mississippi that's earned straight A's for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group® every year since 2012. We are one of only 41 hospitals in the country to achieve this high patient safety standard.

The Hospital Safety Score measures patient-reported experiences with a hospital in specific areas such as:

  • Communication about medicines
  • Communication with nurses and doctors
  • The responsiveness of the hospital staff

Leapfrog also considers how a hospital handles two of the most common hospital infections, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C. diff), as well as 27 other safety measures, including surgical errors, falls and patient injuries.

Founded in 2000 by large employers and other purchasers, The Leapfrog Group® is a national nonprofit organization driving a movement for giant leaps forward in the quality and safety of American health care.
