AHRQ has established the Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture Database as a central repository for survey data from nursing homes that have administered the AHRQ patient safety culture survey instrument and choose to submit their survey data to the Nursing Home SOPS® database. This database serves as an important resource for patient safety culture improvement.

Participation is free and open to all SOPS Nursing Home Survey users, provided the questionnaires are administered in a manner consistent with SOPS guidance and survey data are submitted according to SOPS specifications. The SOPS Nursing Home Database contains data voluntarily submitted by participating nursing homes and is not representative of all U.S. nursing homes.
