HCI launched a new service that will help nursing homes assess how staff perceive resident safety within their organisation.
HCI was delighted to attend the NHI Annual Conference in Citywest Hotel on 14th November 2019. On the day HCI launched a new service called ‘Resident Safety Culture Survey’.
Resident safety culture refers to the values, beliefs, and norms that are shared by staff throughout the organisation that influence their actions and behaviours. However, assessing how staff perceive various aspects of resident safety culture can be difficult to measure.
HCI is now licensed to provide best practice, evidence-based Staff Surveys on Resident Safety Culture developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
The survey will give aged care providers a clear understanding of how staff perceive various aspects of resident safety culture as well as where their organisation stands in terms of embedding a culture of resident safety.
The survey is distributed to all staff who have an impact of resident safety. This will increase awareness among staff of the importance of resident safety and demonstrate that you value the staffs’ opinion and support an open and positive culture of resident safety.
Utilising HCI to co-ordinate the data collection and analysis helps to ensure neutrality and credibility of the results. HCI will provide a dedicated resource who will perform all necessary activities to facilitate the collection and analysis of the survey results. Our experts have many years’ experience in interpreting quality and resident safety data. From the baseline assessment we can work with your nursing home to identify key quality improvement initiatives and HCI can provide you practical support to implement these initiatives.
