Straight A’s

Hospital recognized for exemplary patient safety

Posted: Friday, April 21, 2017 4:03 pm

DeKalb Regional Medical Center has a state-wide reputation for being a top-ranked Alabama hospital, so it came as no surprise when DRMC received its eight straight “A” grade from Hospital Safety Scores. 

The hospital took home the grade recently from the Leapfrog Group, a group that compiles and reports one-of-a-kind data to ensure safety, quality and resources for the public and hands out distinctions of A, B, C, D and F letter grades bi-annually.
