Abstract

A hospital is a facility that provides healthcare services and medications to the community. Therefore, occupational safety and health (OSH) for hospital workers is as important as in other industrial sectors, especially for nurses who perform patient healthcare activities in every service. The implementation of OSH for nurses serves to create a safe environment not only for the patients, but also for the nurses themselves. This research aimed to provide an overview of the implementation of an OSH culture for nurses in the emergency department, operating room, and intensive care unit (ICU) at Hospital X. This was a descriptive analytical research study that used a cross-sectional approach. Questionnaires and interviews with the nurses were used to collect the data. The statistical results of this study showed that not all of the emergency department, operating room, and ICU nurses implemented OSH well (only 43.8%). Based on the interviews, Hospital X planned OSH work procedures and activities, but shortcomings remained in the OSH practice, one of which was in the use of personal protective equipment.
