Patient Safety Culture Survey (PSCS) Composite Results and Comparative Statistics Report

Forty one hospitals participated in the ‘National Patient Safety Culture Survey for Staff in Acute Hospitals’ between June 2013 and March 2014. The survey tool used was an adapted version of the Agency for Health Care Research (United States (US)) ‘Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture’ (AHRQ 2004) and was piloted and refined by the Quality and Patient Safety Directorate (now the Quality Improvement Division (QID)). 
Following the Survey, each participating hospital received its own survey report. This assessment of a hospital’s patient safety culture assisted hospitals in meeting the National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare (HIQA 2012) and enabled hospitals to incorporate survey findings into any quality improvement plans being developed to meet the requirements of the National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare.

In order to meet further information requirements, data from 41 participating hospitals and 4,700 respondents were merged into one composite database and analysed. This Composite Results and Comparative Statistics Report presents this analysis in the form of overall results and comparative measures, so as to enable each hospital to compare its results with those of other hospitals. The Quality Improvement Division is committed to providing the integral support within the overall system to enable hospitals to address comparative culture outcomes.
