SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Proposed Project Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture Comparative Database In 1999, the Institute of Medicine called for health care organizations to develop a ‘‘culture of safety’’ such that their workforce and processes focus on improving the reliability and safety of care for patients (IOM, 1999; To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System). To respond to the need for tools to assess patient safety culture in health care, AHRQ developed and pilot tested the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety (SOPS)Culture with OMB approval (OMB NO. 0935–0115; Approved 2/4/2003). The survey is designed to enable hospitals to assess staff opinions about patient safety issues, medical errors, and error reporting. The survey includes 42 items that measure 12 composites of patient safety culture. AHRQ made the survey publicly available on the AHRQ Web site along with a Survey User’s Guide and other toolkit materials in November 2004 (located at http:// www.ahrq.gov/professionals/qualitypatient-safety/patientsafetyculture/ hospital/index.html). Since its release, the survey has been voluntarily used by hundreds of hospitals in the U.S. The Hospital SOPS Comparative Database consists of data from the E:\FR\FM\21JNN1.SGM 21JNN1
