Abstract

Objectives: patient safety in the operating room is very important. The aim of this study was evaluation the quality of the surgical team in performing patient safety standards in Iranian hospitals. Methods: This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study. The study population consisted of 180 surgical cases in the operating room of selected centers affiliated to Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Data collection tools include a checklist (including demographic characteristics of patients and 134 items in 4 dimensions of standards of anesthesia care before, during and after surgery, observance of essential points in safe surgery, observance of the relationship between the surgical team and the standard of patient movement and position during Surgery). Software SPSS 16 was used to analyze the information. Results: Respectively, the highest mean score to observe the standards of anesthesia care, before, during and after surgery with the highest score (70.7 ± 10.5), then observing the essential points in safe surgery (65.4 ±19.3), Observing the relationship between the surgical team (57.5 ± 18.8) and the standard of patient movement and position during surgery (25.7 ± 7.9) were in the next ranks. In examining the relationship between demographic characteristics and patient safety, patients’ gender and education did not have a significant effect on the performance of the surgical team (p>0.05), but with increasing age and weight, the performance of the surgical team in observing safety standards has increased significantly (p<0.05). Conclusion: According to the results of this study, all members of the surgical team should be more aware of safe surgery and more training programs should be developed for members of the surgical team on compliance with the standards of patient safety in operating room.
