AHRQ to collect data on nursing home safety culture

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has requested approval for a project, “Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture Comparative Database,” which will allow the Agency to assess patient safety culture across the country. The survey utilizes data voluntarily provided by nursing homes to renew the Nursing Home SOPS Comparative database, which allows nursing homes to compare their safety culture against others and provides a facility-specific set of data for nursing homes to use for internal assessment/improvement.

AHRQ must provide a public comment period on this survey, and the information will be available in the July 2, 2015 Federal Register. View an advance copy here.
