This cross-sectional survey study found an association between nurses' perceptions of leadership and their responses to the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture. Nurses' responses about a nonpunitive response to error were associated with their willingness to report medication errors. The authors suggest that safety culture is necessary but not sufficient to support medication safety.
