(Wyoming) "Hospital Safety Score
service of The Leapfrog Group, released grades today for Wyoming's local
hospitals, and it was straight C's across the board for everyone, including
Campbell County Health. But the overall grade can be misleading, as most of
the areas where Gillette's hospital needs improvement are not mainly about
A closer inspection of CCH's individual rates and rankings shows above
average scores for things like staff leadership, responsiveness, and
hygiene. They scored better than average in communication about patient's
medications, and helping discharged patients get the care they need after
they leave the facility.
CCH also set the high score for most effort to track and reduce risks to
patients, meaning they took the most care out of all the hospitals scored
to keep a record of past errors, and endeavor to prevent those mistakes
from ever happening again. They also set the high score for a staff that
works together to prevent errors.
Where their scores dipped below average were in categories like "having
enough qualified nurses " (CCH currently has multiple staff openings.) The
report did not include scores for an entire category, which could also have
negatively impacted their overall grade.
