Culture of Safety Survey Begins July 29

At Baptist Health, we strive to create an environment where our patients feel safe and our employees feel responsible for and empowered to provide the best in patient safety. As part of this effort, we are inviting all staff who directly impact patient care to participate in an online AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality) Hospital Culture of Safety Survey from July 29 to August 11. We are partnering with the Advisory Board Company to administer the survey and your answers will be completely confidential. It will take 10 - 15 minutes to complete and can be completed using any computer with internet access. You are welcome to complete the survey at work or, if you feel more comfortable, from home. An email link will be sent to all employees who are being asked to take the survey. The survey link also will be available on the home page of the Employee Intranet.
