East Orange General Hospital is a proud recipient of the 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award from Healthgrades, making us just one of 458 hospitals nationally recognized for excellence in patient safety. The distinction places EOGH among the top 10% of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.
During the study period, Healthgrades found that patients treated in hospitals receiving the Patient Safety Excellence Award were, on average, less likely to experience accidental injuries during procedures or hospital acquired infections. Patient safety measures how well a hospital prevents injuries, infections, and other serious conditions based on 14 serious, potentially preventable adverse events.
Thank you to all our team members who work to ensure excellence quality and patient safety outcomes.
