The purpose of this study was to investigate perception of patient safety culture and safety care activity among hospital nurses and to identify factors associated with the safety care activity.
A total of 399 nurses working at secondary or tertiary hospitals in B city were participated in. Data were collected using 'Questionnaire on Patient Safety' and 'Safety Care Activity Questionnaire'.
The mean score of patient safety culture was 3.41 out of possible 5. The mean score of safety care activity was 4.40 out of possible 5. There was a positive relation between the perception of patient safety culture and the safety care activity. Through stepwise regression analysis with 22.4% of accountability, it was found that the perception of the safety care activity was associated with communication process, a sub-domain of safety culture, marital status, experience of incidence reporting, and level of patient safety.
The findings show the importance of communication among nurses to improve the safety care activity. To provide high quality of care for patients, it is necessary to educate nurses on fire safety, patient education, and medication safety and improve their communication skills.
