Abstract

Compliance on Reporting Patient Safety-Related Errors Among Staff Nurses of the Philippine Heart Center: An Evaluation


 


Background of the Study: Human errors are one of the serious problems in Nursing


Service that potentially threaten public safety. While there are institutional policies that


require incident reporting, compliance on reporting committed error is particularly


important in the clinical setting to improve safety practices. Transparency and effective


communication are continual challenge among hospital administrators in promoting


more efficient documentation of patient safety-related errors.


 


Objective: To evaluate the compliance on reporting patient safety-related errors among


staff nurses of the Philippine Heart Center .


 


Methods: The study utilized cross-sectional analytic design from a specific population


within a specific time frame. Convenience sampling was employed in data gathering.


The study adapted Lauris Kaldjian's and Galicinao's research tool to determine


compliance on reporting medication errors, fall incidents, and needle stick injuries


among staff nurses (n=402). Factors associated with non-reporting were determined


using Fisher's exact test and the level of significance was set at 5%.


 


Results: Novice nurses with 0-12 months work experience from the non-critical


department were found to be less compliant in reporting medication errors because of


fear of disciplinary action. Adverse consequence of reporting is believed to be the prime


barrier to error reporting.
