Recently, attention has been focused on patient safety. In response, Joint Commission Standards mandated organization-wide patient safety programs. As part of a large multi-facility Patient Safety Program, the organizational climate needed be assessed regarding three conceptual components: 1) staff willingness to report errors, 2) problem-solving processes, and 3) perceptions about leadership concern for patient safety. The purpose of this project was to develop the On-line "Patient Safety Climate Survey," designed to be easy to complete, anonymous, and provide quick initial analysis. Because available tools were too long or did not address all areas, we generated survey items from reviewing the literature and based on our conceptual framework. To ensure content validity, the items were submitted to a panel of QM and research experts. Any item with a Content Validity Index of less than 1.0 was either rewritten or eliminated (Lynn, 1986). A second round of content validity testing was conducted. The final version of the survey consists of two demographic questions, 19-Likert scale items, and one text item. To ensure anonymity, only facility and position was asked of respondents. We tested the tool for internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's alpha=.86) with 43 students with clinical backgrounds who had recently left system hospitals. A test-retest reliability measurement is being analyzed. The survey went "live" in August and a factor analysis will be done from the data. One of the benefits from working directly with an IM/IT developer is a report that is generated directly on-line from the surveys to provide respondent scores, a total score for each facility, and an average for each survey item. Other lessons learned will be discussed. This tool assists in meeting JCAHO patient safety standards and provides valuable baseline information to identify improvement needs and prioritize strategies to facilitate a "culture of safety".
