Patient Safety Measures & Reports

When you or a loved one needs medical attention, you want care that’s safe. Rest assured that your health care providers at Mount Auburn Hospital follow guidelines to reduce infections and prevent errors so you and your family get the best possible outcome.

How Do You Assess Patient Safety?

You can review how well hospitals keep patients safe by reviewing standardized measures related to reducing errors, injuries, accidents and infections. Then, you can use this information to make informed decisions about health care for you and your family.

Whenever possible, we compare our performance to state and/or national benchmarks. Most of this data is available to the general public through:

  • Hospital Compare, a consumer website created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
  • The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care
  • The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization committed to driving quality, safety and transparency in the U.S. health system
