All SMI participating
hospitals were encouraged and invited to take part in a Culture
Assessment Survey (CAS) in preparation for SMI bundle implementation.
Ninety-one hospitals across the state participated, with over 2,700
respondents. Upon completion, the surveys were analyzed and a report was
generated back to each individual hospital that compared their results
in six benchmark areas to hospitals providing the same level of
obstetric care and with the statewide average.
The following hospitals are being recognized and
featured for their remarkable efforts in survey completion. Not only did
they score above average in each element of the survey, they also had
participation from all professional groups within their obstetric unit! A
clear demonstration of the dedication and commitment to support a
culture of patient safety and quality improvement. We applaud these
hospitals and thank all those who completed the survey – we look forward
to highlighting your continued success.

The Culture Assessment Survey is a
psychometrically validated tool designed by Salus Global to evaluate
the environmental factors within a unit that support a culture of
patient safety. The results provide insight into the unit's culture and
can be used to help shape the strategies necessary to successfully
implement the SMI Bundles.
