What has been the impact of Covid-19 on safety culture? A case study from a large metropolitan teaching hospital.

Denning M, Goh ET, Scott A, et al. medRxiv. 2020:06.15.20129080.
This study used the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on safety culture at a large UK teaching hospital compared to baseline scores collected in 2017. Overall, respondents reported more positive perceptions of safety; training and support for redeployment were associated with higher perceptions of safety. However, the analysis identified a significant decrease in error reporting after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
