If you manage a nursing home, you understand that patient safety protocols are paramount–and it all begins with your nursing home staff. Developed by the experts at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the AHRQ Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™(SOPS™) Nursing Home Survey is designed to help you find out if your staff feels safety procedures are effective–and learn how well the staff works together.
Benchmark your survey results against other nursing homes in your region and across the nation. And find out where you can make improvements, so that you can ensure patient safety standards are being upheld.
