Abstract


The issue of clinical quality and patient safety at Puskesmas (community health center) is not as dynamic as that of the hospital level. The aspect of clinical quality and patient safety in Puskesmas is recently implied in the Indonesian Ministry of Health Regulation Number 75, 2014 regarding Puksemas, which states that Puskesmas provides comprehensive essential health services. This study aimed to learn the implementation of patient safety by nurses in the inpatient rooms of Puskesmas Pidie and that of Puskesmas Pidie Jaya. This comparative study employed the cross-sectional design. The respondents in this research were all nurses, the total population, at Puskesmas Pidie and Puskesmas Pidie Jaya with 65 nurses and 40 nurses respectively. The results show that there were no differences in the implementation of patient safety (p = 0.322), patient identification (p=0.238), accurate drug administration (p=0.889), absence of errors in medical and nursing procedures (p=0.421), infection prevention (p=0.388) in the two Puskesmas and only in the prevention of patients from being injured was difference observed (p=0.048). It is necessary that the nurses improve their knowledge, skill, and motivation toward patient safety to increase medical services at the Puskesmas
