Some hospitals have better safety records than others, and you can see how your hospital stacks up online.

Hospital Safety Score grades hospitals on how safe they keep their patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections.

Banner University Medical Center has a hospital safety score of C. That facility scores average in all five categories, while Tucson Medical Center ranks a bit higher. Oro Valley Hospital is the highest-scoring hospital in the metro area.
