2024 Recognized Leaders for Caring for People Living with Diabetes

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) and The Leapfrog Group have come together to develop a first-of-its-kind designation program that evaluates hospitals based on their care for patients with diabetes on admission, during their hospitalization, and at discharge. The program focuses on the implementation of the ADA’s globally recognized guidelines for the treatment of patients with diabetes, Standards of Care in Diabetes – 2024, along with Leapfrog standards for excellence in hospital safety and quality. The program aims to counter the heightened safety risks faced by the 8 million people living with diabetes who are hospitalized each year.

Recognized hospitals provide safe, high quality care for people living with diabetes, by implementing blood glucose (blood sugar) testing and hypoglycemia protocols, specialized preparation for inpatient surgery, meals and insulin regimen planning, robust discharge planning for high-risk patients with diabetes, among others.

The award is not given to a set number of hospitals but rather to all hospitals that submitted the application and met the criteria outlined in the Recognized Leader Methodology.

The ADA and Leapfrog congratulate the first ever Recognized Leaders in caring for People Living with Diabetes, linked below, and commends these hospitals for their commitment to patient safety and quality!
