Many nursing homes using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS™) Nursing Home Survey have expressed interest in comparing their results to other nursing homes. In response, AHRQ has established the Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture Database. This database is a central repository for survey data from nursing homes that have administered the AHRQ patient safety culture survey instrument.
