ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Every year the Leapfrog Group releases a patient safety survey with the latest information for when they choose where to go for medical services, and several Mayo Clinic locations are on the top of this year's list.
Hospitals with Mayo that have received an "A" grade include St. Marys, Rochester Methodist, Mayo Clinic Health Systems with locations in Fairmont, Austin, Albert Lea, Red Wing and La Crosse, Wisconsin; also, Mayo Clinic Hospitals in Phoenix, Arizona and Jacksonville, Florida.
The safety survey uses 26 areas of observation readily available to the public to score the hospital's capability of keeping patients safe from infection, injuries and other errors.
