Survey: Less Than Half of Nurses Call Their Hospitals "Safe"

Only 41 percent of nurses say the hospital they work in is "safe," although 85 percent of nurses agree that their hospital has a patient safety culture, according to a survey by GE Healthcare and the American Nurses Association.

The GE Healthcare Patient Safety Study, which was led by research firm Edelman Berland, includes responses to an online survey of 900 practicing registered nurses in the U.S., U.K. and China as well as feedback from 14 in-depth interviews with nurses between Oct. 12 and Nov. 4, 2011.
