CAMARGO TOBIAS, Gabriela; QUEIROZ BEZERRA, Ana Lúcia; SILVESTRE BRANQUINHO, Nayla Cecília  and  DE CAMARGO SILVA, Ana Elisa Bauer. Culture of Patient Safety in health care: a bibliometric study. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.33, pp.336-348. ISSN 1695-6141.

The objective of this study is to describe the characteristics of scientific literature on patient safety related to security management and organizational culture, the type of publication, year, and vehicle of publication, country, language and theme. Data collection was conducted in June 2012, the Virtual Health Library (VHL) using the keywords patient safety, safety management and organizational culture. The results show 106 indications in seven years (2006 to 2012). 50.9% of the publications were articles from the United States, 84.9% publications were in English, 74% were original articles and the main theme was the malpractice. We conclude that the scientific production was higher and continuous in the last 3 years. The authorship was predominantly American and published in scientific journals in the United States, which indicated the need to develop research on the subject in Brazil.

Keywords : Patient Safety; security management; organizational culture.
