SOMERS POINT — An announcement released by the independent hospital watchdog The Leapfrog Group shows key shifts among many hospitals on the grades rating them on errors, injuries, accidents and infections. Shore Medical Center earned an A in this elite national ratings program, recognizing its strong commitment to patient safety.
