Culture of patient safety – how are we doing?

March 2013

How are we doing at sustaining a work culture that is guided every day by principles of patient safety?Take the survey.

Legacy Health is re-surveying our physicians and employees because we want to know if we have been making progress.

If you have direct contact or interaction with patients, take the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture.

This survey helped inform us of patient safety improvement opportunities when we first administered it in July 2010. This is our third re-measurement and will help us assess our progress. It also will help improve our understanding of how well our work culture enables you to communicate or take action about safety issues. 

The survey is anonymous and confidential.

Special incentive: Everyone who completes the survey will have an opportunity to win Legacy Company Store gift certificates. Look for instructions on the final page of survey.
