Background & aim: The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialized hospital unit designed to provide care for critically ill patients. Nurses who work in these departments play an important role in ensuring patient safety and providing safe and quality nursing care. However, various factors can affect nurses' ability to provide safe nursing care in these settings. This study was conducted with the aim of investigating the factors affecting safe nursing care in the ICU department.
Methods: The present study was a qualitative study of conventional content analysis. The participants included nurses, doctors, and specialists in the field of patient safety, patients and accompanying patients. A total of 20 individuals were included in the study using purposive sampling method. Data collection was done using individual, in-depth and semi-structured interviews. Then, data analysis was done using the method proposed by Graneheim and Landman (2004) and the views of nurses and people related to patient safety in ICU were identified.
Results: Two themes including holistic care and safety-oriented organization and four categories including systematic care, comprehensive care of all systems, human resource management and safe environment were extracted as effective factors in providing safe nursing care in ICU departments.
Conclusion: The results of this study reveal the importance of promoting safe nursing care in ICU departments through a holistic care approach as well as a safety-oriented organization. These findings support previous research that emphasizes the importance of systems thinking and safe nursing care in improving patient safety and overall quality of care. In this way, by implementing targeted interventions and strategies based on these factors, healthcare organizations can create a safer environment not only for patients but also for the staff of the ICU.
