Case Study - Doylestown Hospital Implements Leapfrog's ICU Physician Staffing Standard
March 7, 2018 - When Doylestown Hospital – part of a nonprofit health care network that has delivered care to the Doylestown, Pennsylvania community for more than 90 years – received a “C” on the Spring 2016 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, hospital President and CEO Jim Brexler led a campaign to dramatically improve patient safety throughout the hospital, ultimately increasing its Safety Grade to an “A” in Fall 2016. One key area of improvement was adapting its staffing model to meet Leapfrog’s ICU Physician Staffing (ICU) Standard.

In the following interview, Brexler explains how Doylestown Hospital made this change and offers advice for other hospitals seeking to increase intensivist coverage.
