New SOPS Hospital Survey 2.0
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released the SOPS Hospital Survey 2.0. AHRQ developed and pilot tested the new version of the Surveys on Patient Safety CultureTM (SOPSTM) to update the original hospital survey and incorporate user feedback. The SOPS Hospital Survey 2.0 assesses many of the same areas of patient safety culture as Version 1.0, but substantial changes were made to the survey, including:
- Rewording complex survey items and survey items difficult to translate.
- Adding a “Does not apply/Don’t know” response option.
- Shifting to a “Just Culture” framework to assess Response to Error.
- Revising the staff positions and units/work areas.
