An updated review of multiple measures of safety has been completed and most New Jersey hospitals got either an “A” or “B” but several received a grade of “C” and a few got a “D”. There were no hospitals that got an "F."

Scroll down to see a list of all the hospitals that got an A or a B.

Nearly 47% of the state's hospitals got an A grade in the Fall 2022 Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety survey

🏥How are grades determined?

Katie Stewart, the director of Health Care Ratings for the Leapfrog Group, said Leapfrog will review a wide range of data when determining a hospital grade, focusing on such things as accident prevention, errors and injuries.

She said half of the measures are processes and structures around patient safety.

“Things like having a computerized physician order entry system to help you prevent medication errors when ordering medications for patients in the hospital.”

Other factors that are considered include how many specially trained doctors are in a hospital’s ICU, doctor and nurse communication, and communication about medications.

😷 Patient outcome is important

Stewart said there is also a focus on patient outcomes.

She pointed out that New Jersey has the 6th highest percentage of A-rated hospitals in the nation, and every hospital in the Garden State voluntarily supplied information to the Leapfrog Group for the survey.

“We hope that consumers and patients will look up the safety grades in their area and choose a hospital with a better safety grade,” she said.

How much does the average NJ home cost? Median prices by county

Everything is costing more these days — and housing is certainly no exception in New Jersey.

Data for 2022 from January through August, compiled by New Jersey Realtors, shows that South Jersey has been seeing homes hit the market and sell in less than a month, on average.

Median prices for single-family homes have reached $500,000 and above in nine counties in North and Central Jersey.

All but two counties have seen houses go for more than the list price, on average, this year.
