The great news is New Jersey ranks 6th in the nation for safest hospitals. But where does your particular neighborhood hospital or your preferred hospital land on a safety report issued Wednesday by Leapfrog Hospital Safety? Most hospitals in New Jersey received an overall A, so even more good news. If you're looking for the absolute safest hospital on this report that would be Livingston's St. Barnabas Medical Center the only one in the state to receive an A every year since 2012.

These are further broken down by many categories like mrsa infections, other hospital infections, medication dosing, quality of doctors and nurses, communication, etcetera. My local hospital, Hunterdon Medical Center for example, received an overall C but received many A's in things like quality of doctors. If you want to delve further into the full list and see those individual categories you can check out the entire report here. Meantime, here are the overall grades for your NJ hospital.
