JACKSON, Miss. – They’re not deputing the grade, instead they say there’s room for improvement.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center recently got an “F” rating from hospital watchdog, The Leap Frog Group.
Chief Medical Officer at UMMC, Dr. Michael Henderson says he won’t dispute the grade but also doesn’t want people thinking his hospital is failing.
UMMC scored below average in six categories including, dangerous objects left in the patients body and accident death from treatable serious complications.
Henderson hopes for improvement but doesn’t expect the grade to go up by next spring.
