Safety climate, safety climate strength, and length of stay in the NICU.

Tawfik DS, Thomas EJ, Vogus TJ, et al. BMC health services research. 2019;19:738.

Prior research has found that perceptions about safety climate varies across neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). This large cross-sectional study examining the impact of caregiver perceptions of safety climate on clinical outcomes found that stronger safety climates were associated with lower risk of healthcare-associated infections, but climate did not affect mortality rates.
