Baptist receives A rating for fifth yearNews StaffWed, 05/12/2021 - 08:37 am For the fifth consecutive time, Baptist Medical Center Beaches received an A rating in the spring 2021Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, a national distinction recognizing achievements in providing the safest health care for patients. Baptist Beaches is one of only 33 percent of hospitals in the nation to receive an A rating.To receive an A safety rating five times in a row is extremely gratifying, said Hospital President Joe Mitrick, FACHE. Our dedicated team members and physicians make patient safety their top priority in every situation every day.Baptist Nassau, Baptist South and Baptist Jacksonville also received A safety ratings.Our health care teams are committed to constant monitoring and improving our patient safety standards, said Dr. Elizabeth Ransom, executive vice president and chief physician executive for Baptist Health. Safety is ingrained in our culture through collaboration and open communication which are vital in achieving the highest quality standards in our hospitals.Baptist Beaches safety and quality protocols have been further enhanced since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis through a number of additional measures. Separate respiratory care units for COVID-19 patients, designated staff and equipment for COVID-19 rooms, and the use of advanced UV technology for decontamination are among the many safety reinforcements the health system has implemented.An A safety grade is an elite designation that your community should be proud of, said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. The past year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but Baptist Health shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in their care. Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grades methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Safety Grade is a letter grade assigned to all general hospitals across the country and updated every six months, assessing how well the hospital prevents medical errors and other harms to patients.

The Trident Award will be presented to residents who go above and beyond to make the city a better place.On Monday, the City Council presented resident Richard Keene with its first-ever Trident Award in recognition of his efforts to keep the city free of trash and serving as a watchdog for public safety issues.Every time I see you, you are out picking up and getting litter off of our streets which is wonderful, said Mayor Elaine Brown. Making sure our city is safe, looking for and fighting things that may be a public problem. Thank you for making us aware when you see a problem and thank you for, more importantly every single day, for being an exceptional person.Brown said she developed the concept with City Manager Stefen Wynn during the pandemic.Stefen and I started talking during COVID about honoring an outstanding citizen. We needed something unique and cool and things kind of fell by the wayside. We started closing City Halls and all kinds of things. But it was always there, she said.We had such good ideas and we put it into action. The Trident Award is for someone who is doing something great in our community or something for the community or continues to do things that we feel are exceptional.Keene, who has lived in Neptune Beach more than 35 years, can often be found walking the city streets with a shopping bag and a grabber to collect trash and other debris. The retired CSX attorney was nominated by former Mayor Harriet Pruette.I dont have a dog, but I take along dog treats also for all the neighborhood dogs who come to see me. They know to walk up to me, I dont even have to say anything. They know I have something in my pocket when I walk by, said Keene, who regularly notifies the city staff of any issues he encounters involving public safety. I do report all kinds of problems and I appreciate the award very much.
