Safe Practices


Hospitals are asked to report on their implementation of three (3) of the National Quality Forum (NQF) Safe Practices that, if adopted, can reduce and prevent adverse events in health care settings.

The three (3) NQF-endorsed Safe Practices on the survey are: Culture of Safety Leadership Structures and Systems; Culture Measurement, Feedback, and Intervention; and Nursing Workforce.  

Each safe practice includes four components: awareness, accountability, ability, and action. Each practice also includes a list of activities that every hospital should accomplish.
