What are New Jersey’s safest hospitals? Here’s how they all fared in new national survey

Nearly half of New Jersey’s hospitals earned an “A” in the latest national safety report measuring how effective nurses, doctors and other medical staff are in preventing infections, falls and mistakes that often make patients sicker than they arrived. New Jersey ranks 11th best in the nation — up from 15th best in April —  because 30 of the 68 hospitals that participated in the survey received the top grade, according to the Leapfrog Group’s report on Tuesday. (The Leapfrog rankings were also covered by ROIThe Press of Atlantic,, and Asbury Park Press.)
