CONCERNING: Safety At New Jersey Hospitals Declining, New Grading Says

The number of New Jersey hospitals with a “A” safety rating declined between over the course of 2023, with 24 receiving top grades in a new study – 11 fewer than in the spring. On the bright side, no New Jersey hospital received a failing score.

The grades reflect medical errors, accidents, infections, and patient experience at the hospitals.

Locally, Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood received an A safety grade from the experts at The Leapfrog Group. So did Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, Ocean University Medical Center in Brick, and Community Medical Center in Toms River.

Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, however, got a “B” safety rating this fall, a decline from its “A” grade in the spring. Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick also received a “B” grade, consistent with its spring grade.

It should also be noted that despite the overall decline “A” grades among New Jersey hospitals, 36% of them received top grades – a higher percentage than the 30% national average.
