Safety Climate Survey: reliability of results from a multicenter ICU survey.

Kho ME; Carbone JM; Lucas J; Cook DJ.

This study examined the utility of three safety climate instruments and compared their consistency in measuring desired outcomes. Investigators administered the different tools to staff in four intensive care units and report on the test characteristics of each. The authors advocate for more rigorous evaluation of safety climate tools if they are to effectively measure the success of safety interventions in different clinical settings.
