Introduction: In recent years, patient safety has become one of the greatest concerns of organizations and health care providers. Nurses play a key role in providing safe and high quality cares in all units of the hospital, both general and Intensive Care Units. Since nurses are directly supervised by the head nurses,
Objective: This study aimed to compare the performance of nurses from the viewpoint of nurses in providing safe care to patients in the Intensive care and general units of Aja hospitals in 2018.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study in which nurses’ performance in general and special wards was assessed using the Assessment of Safe Nursing Care Questionnaire (ASNC) with 32 questions and four dimensions of mental, physical, nursing skills and teamwork. Data were analyzed using SPSS 19. The significance level was less than 0.05.
Results: The results have shown no significant difference between the safe performance of nurses in special and general wards. Also, there was no significant relationship between the type of hospital wards, sex, employment status, work shift, participation in the workshop and safe operation of nurses (P>0.05). There was a significant relationship between the type of wards and the nurse’s performance in terms of physical and nursing skills (P<0.05); however, there was no significant relationship between the type of department and the nurse’s performance in the mental health and nursing teamwork dimension (P>0.05).
Discussion and Conclusion: Since nurses’ caring performance in ICUs is not so perfect, it is suggested that more planning be done for the improvements.
Keywords: General wards, Care, Special Wards, Intensive Care Unit, Safety, Safe Nursing Care, Military Hospitals.
