Survey on Patient Safety Culture

August 14, 2012    |   By: Calevir

In the Fall of 2011, the Missouri Center for Patient Safety started a new service line to promote the AHRQ Survey on Patient Safety in an online format. Since implementation, the affordable service has received much interest from facilities in Missouri as well as other states across the country. The survey is an excellent tool to measure the safety culture of hospitals and medical staff offices.

The Center now provides the capability to conduct the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety for an entire hospital, or just for individual departments, on a quarterly or annual basis.   The survey is provided in an online format, allowing staff to take the survey in an anonymous, convenient, online environment. No more paper, no more data entry, no more hand tabulations!

 

At the conclusion of the survey period, we provide comprehensive reports that show areas of improvement or decline, compare your results to national benchmarks, and  provide suggestions for next  steps and action plans.

The Center also provides the AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety in similar format with comprehensive result reporting.

Services are also available for nursing homes.
