Where are the 18 Leapfrog 'F' hospitals?

The Leapfrog Group gave 18 hospitals failing grades in its fall 2021 Hospital Safety Grades released Nov. 10.

The organization assigned letter grades to hospitals based on more than 30 measures of patient safety, including for the first time this year, post-operative sepsis, blood leakage and falls causing hip injury. In the latest update, grades were assigned to 2,901 U.S. facilities.
