AHRQ Seeking Nursing Homes for Pilot Study of SOPS Workplace Safety Survey Items

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is seeking nursing homes to participate in a pilot study of the Workplace Safety Supplemental Item Set for the Surveys on Patient Safety Culture (SOPS) Nursing Home Survey. The new supplemental item set focuses on the extent to which nursing homes’ organizational culture supports the safety of staff in the workplace.

If selected, participating nursing homes will receive:

  • Free survey administration of the SOPS Nursing Home Survey with the Workplace Safety Supplemental Items to nursing home staff in June/July 2022.
  • Feedback reports comparing their results to other pilot sites.
  • The option to have findings included in the next SOPS Nursing Home Database.

If your nursing home(s) or nursing home chain would like to participate or learn more, please email WorkplaceSafety@westat.com or call 1-855-390-2448.
