I just don’t trust these hospital scores. Leapfrog’s seem particularly off based on what I know about local hospitals.

For instance, the hospital where both my mother and sister died of medical negligence, John Ritter died and Alicia Cole got flesh eating disease, is still getting a B rating. They get a B average over their last 7 ratings periods. This hospital is also well-known for overdosing patients in the radiology lab with radiation! They get terrible online reviews from patients.

The hospital where I just had my double hernia surgery got a C! I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with that hospital, their staff, the cleanliness and all the safety protocols they had in place while I was there.

These scores are just horrendously misleading.
