New Jersey Hospitals Perform Well on Safety Report Card

Released in May 2019, the most recent Leapfrog Hospital Safety report card ranks New Jersey hospitals sixth in the nation for prioritizing safety. Rankings are based on the efficacy of hospitals’ policies to prevent medical mistakes and protect patients from avoidable problems, like infections, falls, or receiving the wrong treatment.

Among the New Jersey hospitals included in the report, Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston stands out as the only hospital in the state–and one of only a few dozen in the nation–that has earned an A rating on every safety report card since 2012. Eight other New Jersey hospitals improved their safety grade since last year’s report, including St. Luke’s Warren Campus in Phillipsburg, which took its rating from a C to an A.
