Background: Patient safety culture is a key element in promoting safety and improving the quality of patient care. In order to enhance this culture, evaluation of the present culture is necessary.  This study aims to investigate the dimensions of patient safety culture from the perspective of the staff of Saveh teaching hospitals.
Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed in two hospitals affiliated with Saveh University of Medical Sciences in 2019. The research sample consisted of 196 medical staff who were selected through proportional stratified sampling. Data was collected through Patient Safety Culture Questionnaire (HSOPSC) and analyzed by independent t-test and Mann-Whitney test using SPSS software version 21.  Level of significance was set as p <0.05.
Results: Among the 12 dimensions of the questionnaire, intra-organizational teamwork by allocating 76% of the total score (4.12 ±0.28) was desirable and was considered the best dimension. However, teamwork among organizational units by allocating 36.6% of the total score (2.92±0.83)   was in the poorest condition. There was a significant relationship between gender and patient safety culture such that women were more responsive to patient safety than men (P <0.05).
Conclusion: According to the study findings, improvement of patient safety culture and intercommunication between hospital units is considered a necessity. It is recommended to provide a more intimate environment for communication between hospital personnel.
