A new safety ranking has graded more than 100 hospitals across Illinois, leaving more than two dozen with "A" grades, a sharp increase from the same time last year, but Illinois continued to drop in rank on the national scale. The latest rankings from the Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit watchdog, analyzed nearly 3,000 general hospitals in the U.S. based on protection from things like medical errors, accidents, injuries, and infections. In Illinois, 113 hospitals were rated, with 30 hospitals receiving "A" grades, 25 scoring "B" grades, 50 others getting "C" grades.
