Patient Safety Culture Survey (PSCS) System

The Agency for Health Care Administration has created a Patient Safety Culture Survey System in accordance with s. 395.1012(4), F.S. The PSCS System was designed to generate the findings from patient safety culture survey data collected and compiled from Florida hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs).

The Agency encourages each facility to evaluate the results generated from the PSCS System to assess the status of patient safety culture and identify strengths and areas of needed improvement within their facility. The survey data findings will be published as available, pursuant to s. 408.05(3)(d)3., F.S.
