Patient safety is a very important public health issue that is defined as preventing adverse effects on the patient and increase in risk of frequent errors that occur. It is based on a patient safety culture that includes healthcare professionals, healthcare organizations and organizations involved in healthcare, and patients. Patient safety is defined as any absence of possible or unnecessary damage to the patient related to health care, or any damage done to the patient that is not caused by the underlying disease. The healthcare system needs to be made as safe as possible, both for the patient and for all those who provide health care. Patient safety is an essential component of health quality, especially in transition countries, where a high proportion of patients worldwide experience disability, injury or death each year due to unsafe medical care. Patient safety culture is defined as a value which describes how processes work in organization and interaction within the work unit and organizational structures and systems that together implement behavioral norms that promote safety. Nowadays, there is a great challenge to achieve excellence within the healthcare industry, so lately it has been crucial to achieve, maintain, measure and improve quality in health care. To achieve a culture of patient safety it is necessary to understand the values, beliefs and norms about what is important in the organization and which attitudes and behaviors related to patient safety are expected and appropriate.
