BEZERRA, Thaissa Blanco et al. Perception of the nursing team on climate organizational safety of a public hospital. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.53, pp.86-133.  Epub Oct 14, 2019. ISSN 1695-6141.


To evaluate the perception of the nursing team regarding the organizational safety climate in a referral hospital in the metropolitan region of the capital of Mato Grosso, Brazil, and to verify whether there were statistically significant differences in the perception of the organizational safety climate among the nursing assistant, nursing technician and nurse categories.


A descriptive, transversal study with nursing professionals, using the self-administered Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ), adapted and validated for Brazil.


the sample consisted of 139 nursing professionals. The mean of the SAQ domains ranged from 42.07 to 73.13 points, classified as a poor perception. The evaluation of the domains evidenced lower means for working conditions and perception of management of the unit and of the hospital, respectively.


There was a low perception of the organizational safety climate in the institution, since a satisfactory score was not achieved in any of the domains investigated, with the exception of the job satisfaction domain, although, in a borderline manner. In this way, it was possible to perceive the distancing of the hospital and unit management from activities related to patient safety, which can directly influence adherence to safe behaviors by the professionals of the team and decrease the quality of the care.
