ahrq-partnersThe Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality has extended the deadline for nursing homes, which have administered the agency’s nursing home safety culture survey, to voluntarily submit their data to the agency’s comparative database to May 31, 2014.

As previously reported by American Data Network, AHRQ established the Nursing Home Comparative Database as a central repository for information gathered through its Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture. The database is designed to produce comparative results that can help nursing homes across the country identify strengths as well as opportunities for improvement in patient safety culture.
