AHRQ seeks nursing homes to participate in study on how culture affects workplace staff safety
A new pilot study focusing on the extent to which nursing homes’ organizational culture supports workplace safety for healthcare staff is being launched by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Nursing homes that are determined to be eligible to participate in the study also may be eligible for an incentive payment.
Nursing homes that participate in “Workplace Safety Supplemental Items for the Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS®) Nursing Home Survey” will receive:
- Free survey administration of the SOPS Nursing Home Survey with the SOPS Workplace Safety Supplemental Items to nursing home staff in July/August 2022.
- Feedback reports comparing their results to other pilot sites.
- The option to have findings included in the next SOPS Nursing Home Database.
