SummaryPurposeThe purpose of the study was to explore and describe nurses’ perceptions of patient safety culture in four Turkish hospitals encompassing a collective total of 1442 beds.BackgroundThe importance of minimizing losses due to medical errors in the high-risk health sector and awareness of the risks to patients and health workers has gained prominence in the world, and the concept of a culture of patient safety has become a topic of discussion.MethodThe safety culture in the hospitals in Turkey was evaluated using the Turkish version of the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (HSOPSC). A convenience sample of 554 nurses was recruited from the hospitals.ResultsThe highest mean composite score among the 12 dimensions was on teamwork within units, followed by organizational learning/continuous improvement. The lowest mean scores were on non-punitive response to error and frequency of event reporting.ConclusionsMany Turkish nurses have negative perceptions towards patient safety culture within their institution. No participants indicated their affiliated institution had a protocol or policy concerning event reporting. Nurse managers need to create a positive safety culture by open communication, mutual trust, shared perceptions of the importance of safety and confidence in the efficacy of preventative measures.
