Introduction: With the development of modern health care understanding, quality and patient
safety in health have become an important issue. Although health systems differ in all parts of
the world, the causes and solutions of patient safety problems are similar.
Objective: This study was conducted to determine the patient safety attitudes of intensive care
Method: The personal information form prepared by the researcher in data collection and was
first developed by Sexton et al. (2006), and Baykal et al. (2010) Patient Safety Attitude Scale,
which was adapted into Turkish, was used. SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences)
23.0 package program was used for statistical analysis of the data. Categorical measurements
are summarized as numbers and percentages, and continuous measurements as mean and
standard deviation. Shapiro-Wilk, Mann Whitney U test, Kruskall Wallis, Bonferroni method
from Post Hoc analysis were used. The relationship between the scales was examined by
Pearson and Spearman correlation analysis, and the statistical significance level was taken as
0.05 in all tests.
Results: It was determined that the mean age of the nurses participating in the study was
30.26±6.56 years, 62.3% were women, 51.5% (n: 105) were single. When the training and
reporting status of nurses regarding patient safety are examined; 94.1% of them received a
training on patient safety, 84.9% of the trainees found the training sufficient, 60.3% found the
patient safety practices in the institution sufficient, 67.2% reported on patient safety practices.
It was determined that 72.1% of them reported on medical errors. The mean score of the Patient
Safety Attitude Scale was found to be 139.65±18.54, and the results were found to be highly
reliable with a Cronbach Alpha value of 0.881.
Conclusion: As a result of this study, it was determined that most of the intensive care nurses,
most of whom were women, were undergraduate and contracted, young and half of them did
not have a sufficient working life in terms of experience. While the gender, marital status and
working status of the nurses in this study did not affect the HGT scale averages, the HGT scale
averages of those who did not receive patient safety training, did not receive adequate in-house
training, did not report on patient safety and did not report medical errors were found to be
Key words: patient safety, patient, nurse.
