24/7 Wall St.: The States with the Safest Hospitals

10. Minnesota

Hospitals with A grade: 37%
Number of hospitals with A grade: 17
Life expectancy at birth: 80.85 years
Cancer death rate per 100,000: 173.7

More than one-third of Minnesota hospitals received an A grade by Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Score. The state’s hospitals were especially successful at minimizing errors that could potentially occur during inpatient care. For all four criteria used by Leapfrog in assessing life-threatening hospital errors, Minnesota hospitals averaged fewer errors per 1,000 people than the nation’s average. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, one of the facilities receiving an A, outperformed national averages in all patient safety indicators (PSIs) dealing with surgery, procedures and childbirth.
