Abstract

Patient safety is founded on continuous learning because there is an urgent need to report and learn from errors, accidents, near misses, and adverse events. The traditional approach to patient safety, based on forming mortality committees and investigating accidents, will no longer be effective. Frameworks, surveys, and assessment tools have been developed over the last decade to assist organizations in measuring and understanding their culture. This a retrospective cross-sectional study included 67,010 respondents from Agency for Health care Research and Quality (AHRQ) 2018 comparative database was analyzed using partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). This research explored whether the dominant patient safety culture would impact the frequency of reported events and overall perceptions of patient safety. Furthermore, the study amid to examine whether respondents and hospital characteristics influence the perception of patient safety culture and the impact on healthcare staff. The results in this study showed that the perception of PSC positively influenced the overall perception of patient safety and frequency of event reporting. Moreover, the results revealed that hospital and respondents' characteristics (Staff Position, Teaching Status and Geographic Region) had varying influence on patient safety culture, overall perception of patient safety and frequency of event reporting.
