Two hospitals in the Louisville area have received low scores from a nonprofit that grades hospital safety ratings. Jewish Hospital and University of Louisville Hospital, or U of L Hospital, both received D grades from the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.
Both hospitals weren’t able to raise their scores this year, having maintained the D grade from 2016. This is unfortunate, because the medical care centers are trying to make their facility safer for their patients.
