Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture: 2014 User Comparative Database Report

Appendix B: Overall Results by Respondent Characteristics

(1) Work Area/Unit

Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their work area/unit were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who selected “Many different work areas/No specific work area” or “Other” or who did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 2: The number of hospitals and respondents in each work area/unit is shown. The number of hospitals is based on: (1) hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their work area/unit (not all hospitals asked this question), and (2) whether the hospital had at least five respondents in a particular work area/unit and at least three respondents to a particular question. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in the tables will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.

(2) Staff Position

Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their staff position were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who selected “Other” or who did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 2: The number of hospitals and respondents in each staff position is shown. The number of hospitals is based on: (1) hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their staff position (not all hospitals asked this question), and (2) whether the hospital had at least five respondents in a particular staff position and at least three respondents to a particular question. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in the tables will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.

(3) Interaction With Patients

Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their interaction with patients were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 2: The number of hospitals and respondents is shown in each table. The number of hospitals is based on: (1) hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their interaction with patients (not all hospitals asked this question), and (2) whether the hospital had at least five respondents in the response categories and at least three respondents to a particular question. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in the tables will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.

(4) Tenure in Current Work Area/Unit

Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their amount of tenure in current work area/unit were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 1: The number of hospitals and respondents is shown in each table. The number of hospitals is based on: (1) hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their amount of tenure in current work area/unit (not all hospitals asked this question), and (2) whether the hospital had at least five respondents in the response categories and at least three respondents to a particular question. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in the tables will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.
