Of the more than 2,600 hospitals graded by Leapfrog this spring, 32 percent earned an "A" grade, 26 percent earned a "B," 36 percent earned a "C," 6 percent earned a "D," and less than 1 percent earned an "F," according to an article on the Becker's Clinical Leadership and Infection Control website.

Leapfrog released its spring 2019 Hospital Safety Grades on May 15. Areas of measurement include nurse communication, hand hygiene adherence and surgical site infection rates.

Wyoming, Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Delaware and North Dakota had no hospitals with "A" grades this spring.

The states with the highest percentage of "A" hospitals were Oregon (58 percent), Virginia (53 percent), Maine (50 percent), Massachusetts (48.3 percent) and Utah (48 percent).
