Abstract

Across the international healthcare industry, organisational culture and working environments have become central to all things patient safety. Culture is a term that has become synonymous with patient experience, satisfaction, mortality and morbidity. Francis [1] chaired an independent public inquiry into catastrophic failings in care at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust UK, the inquiry highlighted how healthcare organisational culture was a major contributing factor in the repeated failure to meet patients’ needs. Francis made a total of 290 recommendations based on the official enquiry, one of his recommendations was the need to develop a culture of care barometer, to accurately measure organisational culture in practice.
