Patient Safety Group: “We’re Burying a Population the Size of Miami”

LeapfrogAt the inception of the Leapfrog Group, the hospital industry hailed it as the “gold standard” of quality measurement.  Leapfrog’s latest report, however, denounces the industry for moving too slowly on patient safety improvements, and hospitals are crying “foul.”
