In this study, the medical department with worse safety culture scores, as rated by AHRQ Hospital Survey of Patient Safety Culture, actually had fewer adverse events, as measured by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Global Trigger Tool. The authors suggest that safety culture may not accurately reflect patient safety and requires further measure development.
