Abstract

The Chinese version of safety attitudes questionnaire is used to evaluate patient safety culture from the viewpoints of physicians and nurses of a regional teaching hospital in Taiwan in 2014. This study applies Mann-Whitney U test for two independent samples test and analysis of variance to observe if different demographic variables are perceived differently in patient safety culture in terms of eight dimensions. In addition, linear regression models are applied to take into account the confounding effects of demographic variables in eight dimensions. The results show that none of the eight dimensions is more important. Besides, supervisor/manager and experience in position are the two critical demographic variables to influence the patient safety culture. The results imply that the hospital management needs to pay much attention to the employees who are not supervisors/managers and/or more experienced in position because they are less satisfied in patient safety culture.
