Thanks. That is good new and supports my basic thinking.

The next question would be which of the list of culture items in my list are thought to be more valuable. Haw that been studied.

And then what is the % of hospitals that grade well for culture.

And then what can we do for those that do not grade well for culture?

And also do hospitals routinely grade themselves for culture?

And if we can save lives is this something this list/organization should be involved with, support?

And how to do that.

Within-organization variability is generally much higher than between-organization vulnerability on safety culture surveys. So studies that look at “culture” in the organization as a whole tend to have weaker results. The specific papers do show a decent link.
