At the Center for Patient Safety (CPS), we feel strongly about culture being an integral part in the journey to improving patient safety and quality in healthcare. Improvements are not immediately achievable, but it’s never too late to begin the journey!
CPS recommends a culture assessment as part of your patient safety journey
CPS encourages the use of survey assessments as a diagnostic tool to support and guide your patient safety culture improvement efforts. CPS can efficiently administer your culture survey, saving you valuable time and money.
We administer custom patient safety culture surveys for:
It takes an average of 30-60 hours to administer a successful survey on your own, but it only takes 1-3 hours to administer a successful survey with CPS
You know measuring your culture is important, but you may lack the internal resources to administer a successful survey. A successful survey will require marketing materials, emails, a method for data collection and analysis, data cleaning and filtering, formatting, etc.
You’ll only spend 1-3 hours over an 8-10 week period with CPS survey administration. Culture surveying is one of our core competencies – let us help you! We have spent years developing an administrative process to survey healthcare organizations efficiently and with expert guidance.
“We love the Center’s patient safety culture survey feedback reports. The department level reports give a level of granularity we were lacking with previous surveys.”
CPS standard services include:
A custom feedback report is provided for every department/unit/location level within 30 days of the survey close date. We’ve developed an extensive feedback report that includes all you need to know to take action from the survey. All feedback reports include survey highlights (good for board members and c-suite execs), prioritized results by question and dimension, and direct links to ready-to-use toolkits and resources for your top three priorities.
