Patient Safety Tool: Hospital Safety Culture Check-Up

Share on Facebook
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality offers a free patient safety culture check-up tool through its program "On the CUSP: Stop BSI," which uses the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program to prevent central line-associated blood stream infections.

The tool provides a structure to guide patient safety culture conversations using specific survey items. Patient safety leaders and hospital executives can use the tool before implementing an intervention to identify potential barriers and strengths in patient care areas.
