Introduction: Patient safety is one of the main components of the quality of health services, and means
avoiding any harm to the patient while providing health care. Despite advances in healthcare, patient
safety and patient-centered safety in healthcare systems around the world is still a matter of concern.
Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the status of safety culture in hospital staff
affiliated with Jahrom University of Medical Sciences.
Method: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, using the staff of hospitals affiliated to Jahrom
University of Medical Sciences, it was performed by census method (n =). The instrument used to
assess patient safety culture was the Standard Patient Safety Culture Survey Questionnaire (HSOPSC),
which consisted of 42 questions and 12 dimensions. Analysis of patient safety information was
performed according to descriptive statistics and independent t-test and one-way analysis of variance.
Results: In the present study, 124 people from different wards of Jahrom Motahhari Hospital
participated in the study. There were 20 people from screen ward, 11 person from children ward, 15
people from maternity ward, 31 people from internal wards, 10 people from laboratories, 14 people
from NICU wards and 23 people from operating rooms. The average score of the overall safety culture
was 132.12. In terms of patient safety culture in Motahhari Hospital staff, 68.93% were at the desired
level and 31.07% were not at the desirable level. Among the clinical wards, the operating room and
the internal ward, with an average of 142.61 and 137.1, respectively, had the highest average score of
the patientchr('39')s immune culture status. The findings indicated that the patientchr('39')s safety culture in Motahhari
hospital is at the desired level and also the patientchr('39')s safety culture decreases with age. Patientschr('39') safety
culture was also higher in women than in men and in married staffs than in single staffs. The highest
patient safety culture was observed in undergraduate and graduate staff.
Conclusion: In general, improving the patientchr('39')s safety culture should be an important priority for
medical center managers in order to reduce patient errors and events. It is hoped that by improving
this culture between staff and self-reporting without any fear of punishment, the rate of error in patients
will be significantly reduced.
