BJC | Employee participation in the latest safety culture survey reached 51 percent across BJC, an eight-point increase over the previous survey.
Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital led the way with an 80.9 percent participation rate, followed by Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and Parkland Health Center, which also achieved the 70 percent participation goal. An additional eight hospitals and health service organizations reached participation rates above 60 percent.
“We appreciate hearing from so many employees who were able to take the time to share their thoughts and opinions on our safety culture across BJC HealthCare,” says Clay Dunagan, MD, senior vice president and chief clinical officer. “Patient safety must be at the center of our mission and our jobs, each and every day, and it is essential that we learn from those at the front lines of our operations about what we can do to further reduce risk factors in care delivery.”
The survey, developed by the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Effectiveness, is used by hospitals and health care organizations across the U.S. BJC results will be benchmarked against other peer organizations across the country. To ensure confidentiality, the survey is administered by a third party, Willis Towers Watson, the same company that manages the BJC employee engagement survey.
Hospital level results of the survey are expected to be available in December.
