Organizations with robust safety culture, as measured by AHRQ's Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture, have improved objective measures of safety. Researchers compared the AHRQ survey to a factorial survey examining safety behavior among employees in a radiotherapy department. The two surveys yielded similar results, while the factorial survey added that staff were more likely to report safety concerns if they caused patient harm.
