Children's Hospital Receives Safety Award

Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has received the Top Hospital Award from the Leap Frog group. The award goes to hospitals that demonstrate excellent patient safety records and who meet four critical guidelines that include the implementation of a computer program that monitors and ensures patient medications won't cause adverse reactions because of past medical history, allergies or multi medication reactions. The hospital was only one of seven chosen nationwide and was selected out of a pool of over 1,220 hospitals.
