Its hospital safety grades, released every April and October since 2012, are aimed at encouraging patients to pay attention to safety when they choose hospitals. Hawaii moved up from 36th in 2012 to third, while OR moved up from 48th in 2012 to eighth.

Maryland had previously been exempted from reporting key hospital safety metrics. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.

"We are not satisfied with our C grade in patient safety from The Leapfrog Group as it does not reflect our commitment to provide high-quality care in a safe environment", Jeremy Clark, Hilton Head Regional Healthcare's Market Chief Executive Officer, said in a press release.

In the category of infections for the fall 2017 report, Beaufort Memorial Hospital scored as well as the best hospitals in the country all five areas surveyed, which was one more category than the spring report.

"Since the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade launch in 2012, our mission has been to increase awareness of hospital safety concerns among consumers, as well as light a fire under hospitals and community leaders to be champions for change", said Leah Binder, Leapfrog president and CEO. This was done in accordance with the specifications used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for hospitals nationwide, resulting in Maryland Safety Grades being reported this fall.
