The data submission period for the 2021 Culture of Safety Survey closed on April 15, 2021. Over 100 ASCs participated in the electronic survey, with 2,345 clinical and nonclinical employees rating their attitudes, beliefs, perceptions and values about patient safety in their center.
About the Survey
The Culture of Safety Survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. It consists of 35 questions grouped into eight composites:
- Working in the Facility
- Teamwork and Training
- Organizational Learning/Responses to Mistakes
- Near-Miss Documentation
- Management Support for Patient Safety
- Overall Rating
- Communication in the Surgery/Procedure Room
- Background Questions
Participating ASCs now have convenient 24/7 access to their easy-to-read data reports. You can use these reports to compare your ASC’s results to aggregate data collected from all participating facilities to help assess the current status of patient safety within your center, identifying strengths and determining areas for improvement. ASC management companies can compare facilities within their organization.
More information will be available later this year regarding the submission period for the 2022 Culture of Safety Survey.
