“The culture of safety: results of an organization-wide survey in 15 California Hospitals” Article Critique and Discussion

In the research report “The culture of safety: results of an organization-wide survey in 15 California Hospitals,” Singer et al discuss and review the results of a survey conducted at 15 different hospitals that was designed to measure the extent to which a “culture of safety” existed in each facility. According to the report, the nature of the survey covered a more extensive range of personnel than previous studies; respondents included senior management and hospital officials, physicians, nurses, and other employees.  The report indicated that a significant number of facilities demonstrated the need for making improvements in developing a culture of safety in their respective hospitals.
