Lillykutty M. J | Josy A Mathew | Dhanya Jose "Safe Patient Care: Knowledge, Attitude and Practice Among ICU Nurses" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-5, August 2018, pp.566-570, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd15882.pdf

The present study describes nurses’ knowledge, attitude and self-reported practice regarding safe patient care. A quantitative descriptive correlational design study, using purposive sampling technique was conducted on 70 ICU nurses. The overall result indicates that majority of the sample has good knowledge (93%) and positive attitude (87%) towards safe patient care. All sample (100%) reported good patient safety practices. The findings of the study also show no association between knowledge with educational status and years of experience (?2 =0.021, 0.86) at 0.05 level of significance. The association between attitude with educational status and year of experience (?2 =152.56, 80.2) are statistically significant at .05 level. While there is a correlation exists between knowledge and practice (r=0.361, p=0.002) at 0.05 level of significance, the correlation between knowledge and attitude (r=0.208, p=0.084), practice and attitude (r=0.032, p=0.795) are not significant at 0.05 level.
