Measuring the patient safety culture at a tertiary care hospital in Pakistan using the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (HSOPSC)
Mapped to GPSAP 2021-2030, Strategic Objectives 2, 4 and 5 - Strategies 2.3, 4.3, 5.2 and 5.5
Safety culture measurement is feasible and informative in developing countries and could be broadly implemented to inform patient safety efforts.
Current data suggest that it compares favorably with benchmarks from hospitals in the USA. Like the USA, high staff workload is a significant safety concern among staff.
This study lays the foundation for further context-specific research on patient safety culture in developing countries.
