Abstract

This study was conducted to identify the factors influencing patient safety behavior and performance of infection control in nursing students. This study was a descriptive survey based on data collected from August 28, 2017, to September 22, 2017 from 174 third and fourth year nursing students at E university located in S city of Gyeonggi. The collected data were analyzed using the PASW 23.0 program to conduct an independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, post-hoc Scheffe's test, Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression. The average scores of patient safety behavior and performance of infection control were $4.00{\pm}0.55$ and $4.31{\pm}0.50$, respectively. Patient safety behavior and performance of infection control showed a strong positive correlation. Patient safety behavior was positively influenced by confidence levels of patient safety and awareness of the infection control, and the explanatory power of the model (R2)[ED highlight - should this be R2? If so, change throughout the paper.] was 55.1%. Predictors of the performance of infection control were patient safety knowledge, confidence levels regarding patient safety, and awareness of infection control, and the R2 was 68.1%. Common factors influencing patient safety behavior and infection control performance were patient safety confidence and development of effective clinical practicum education programs to increase confidence in patient safety and infection control.
