This study supports the notion that a positive safety culture, measured by the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture, is associated with fewer hospital-based adverse events. Adverse events were measured by the AHRQ Patient Safety Indicators. The authors highlight the need for further investigation to determine if improving safety culture actually leads to reduced adverse events.
