This study determined that results from the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety were associated with differences in central line–associated bloodstream infection rates. The authors found five different overall patterns of responses which they propose as distinct safety climates. These results argue for integrating survey results rather than testing whether each separate aspect of safety climate is linked to a particular safety problem.
