Evaluating ambulatory practice safety: the PROMISES project administrators and practice staff surveys.
This study reports findings from the baseline practice staff and administrator surveys designed as part of the PROMISES Project to assess safety and malpractice risks in the ambulatory setting. It found that administrators frequently reported important safety systems and processes were absent. Suboptimal or incomplete implementation of referral and test result management systems were related to staff perceptions of their quality.
