Abstract

Introduction: Maintaining safety and preventing side effects, especially in hospitalized patients, has become a global health concern.The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between nurses' perception of work environment conditions and safety indicators of hospitalized patients in special sectors.

Methods: The study is a descriptive, analytical, cross-sectional study.Which was performed on 120 nurses working in intensive care units in 2016. The sample was selected by census method,
Data was collected by self-report method,Personal information questionnaire, frequency record of unintended consequences and standardized standard of nurses' perception of environmental conditions.Using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation and frequency) and inferential statistics (Chi-square, Spearman correlation coefficient, independent t-test and Mann-Whitney test), the data were analyzed.

Results: Of the four safety implications, the frequency of compression wound was 58.1%, zero and 37.9%, and 0.8%, three times reported.The relative incidence of pneumonia related to ventilator is 58.1% and 38.7% respectively.There was no agreement between the four safety implications of the perception of nurses in the intensive care unit.There was a significant difference between the mean scores of nurse's nurse's relationship with nurses (p = 0.02)
Also, there was a significant difference between the mean scores of physician and nurse communication in the nurses' group (p = 0.04).

Conclusion: Nurses' perception of the overall working environment conditions has no significant relationship with perceived nursing effects of unwanted safety, which can indicate the need for special attention to other causes for the prevention and reporting of nurses from the patient's safety implications.
