Efficient Patient Safety Culture Surveying

May 12, 2014    |   By: Calevir

Have you recently administered the Survey on Patient Safety Culture at your hospital, LTC facility, pharmacy, medical office, or home care organization?   If not, you could be missing out on a very reliable source of information… your staff!

Your staff can tell you about your culture and where patient safety concerns may exist, however, they may not be open to talking about the weaker areas with their employer! Our system for administering the survey can ask consistent questions in an anonymous format.   Additionally, we provide tools and customizable resources to help you promote the survey to get as much feedback as possible, because, the higher your rate of employee response, the more closely the results will match your culture.   We then provide you the feedback in a valuable report format that includes next steps.

Using AHRQ’s standardized test questions and format, the Center for Patient Safety has developed a convenient, online environment for your staff to anonymously take the survey on a computer at work, at home, or in the local coffee shop – anywhere they feel comfortable providing honest feedback about your safety culture.
