Sinkowitz-Cochran RL, Garcia-Williams A, Hackbarth AD, et al. Evaluation of organizational culture among different levels of healthcare staff participating in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 100,000 Lives Campaign. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology. 2012 Feb;33(2):135-143.
This paper assessed how hospital organizational and cultural factors associated with implementation of quality initiatives such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 100,000 Lives Campaign differ among levels of healthcare staff. Three levels of staff (frontline, midlevel, and executive) were found to have markedly different perceptions regarding the IHI Campaign and organizational culture. The authors suggest that simultaneously assessment of staff may be a useful tool for future evaluations of organizational culture and quality initiatives.
