Having grossed 213 million dollars worldwide so far, the thriller even reclaimed the No 1 spot at the USA box office last weekend. Beck continued, "There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer".
The LeapFrog Group assesses about 2,500 USA hospitals twice a year by using 27 measures of publically available hospital safety data to assign hospitals A, B, C, D or F grades.
It is one of only 11 hospitals in Washington and 750 of 2,660 nationwide to achieve an A rating this spring. The nation's capital has consistently ranked near the bottom of Leapfrog's rankings analysis. Duke University had received an "A" grade the past six reports, and WakeMed Cary Hospital had received an "A" four of the past five reports. She continued, "In the case of Washington, D.C., we're encouraged residents have an "A" hospital in the area for the first time in five years". The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade can also be followed on Twitter and Facebook.
"A total team commitment to evidence-based infection control practices is the key to earning this A rating for the second time in a row", HMH vice president of Patient Care Services and chief nursing officer, Sharon Wright said in a news release. The Leapfrog Hospital Survey results can tell you a lot about a hospital, and if it provides safe, high-quality care. It is updated every six months, once in the fall and once in the spring. The assessments are peer reviewed and free to the public.
