A strong safety culture encourages error reporting and supports a blame-free environment, and is frequently measured to develop appropriate interventions. This review identified nearly 900 studies that assessed hospital safety culture with response rates from 4% to 100%. The authors identify several factors that influence response rate: remote distribution (i.e., electronic or sent via mail), timing (e.g., beginning/end of resident rotations, COVID-19), and length of survey.
