Resumen

MIR-ABELLAN, Ramon; FALCO-PEGUEROLES, Anna  y  PUENTE-MARTORELL, María Luisa de la. Attitudes towards patient safety culture in a hospital setting and related variables. Gac Sanit [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.2, pp.145-149. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2016.07.019.

Objective:

To describe attitudes towards patient safety culture among workers in a hospital setting and determine the influence of socio-demographic and professional variables.

Methods:

The Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture was distributed among a sample of professionals and nursing assistants. A dimension was considered a strength if positive responses exceeded 75% and an opportunity for improvement if more than 50% of responses were negative.

Results:

59% (n = 123) of respondents rated safety between 7 and 8. 53% (n = 103) stated that they had not used the notification system to report any incidents in the previous twelve months. The strength identified was “teamwork in the unit/service” and the opportunity for improvement was “staffing”. A more positive attitude was observed in outpatient services and among nursing professionals and part-time staff.

Conclusions:

This study has allowed us to determine the rating of the hospital in patient safety culture. This is vital for developing improvement strategies.
