  About the Surveys on Patient Safety Culture
The Surveys on Patient Safety Culture are a suite of surveys that assess provider and staff opinions about patient safety culture in hospitals, outpatient medical offices, nursing homes, and community pharmacies. The patient safety culture surveys program at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) supports the development and promotion of patient safety culture surveys, toolkit materials, and comparative databases, and provides technical assistance to users. Learn more about the program at: http://www.ahrq.gov/professionals/quality-patient-safety/patientsafetyculture/.

AHRQ’s Surveys on Patient Safety Culture Database receives data voluntarily submitted by users that have administered the patient safety culture surveys. The database aggregates the data to facilitate comparisons of patient safety culture survey results by users, researchers, and other interested organizations.
