As a consequence of escalating costs and inert progress to improve patient safety in hospitals today, greater attention is being placed on improving an organizations culture of patient safety at all levels of healthcare. This study used existing data in a multi site acute care hospital system in Western New York to conduct a secondary analysis to compare the perceptions of the culture of safety before and after the implementation of education and error reduction policies and practices. Key areas of measuring perception included managements support, communication openness and overall perception. The evaluation method utilized descriptive statistics to compare pre and post perception of the culture of safety. Results revealed that the education of staffing error reduction tool use showed improvement in perception of the culture of safety in nine of the eleven questions surveyed.
