Abstract

The objective of this study is to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of health care providers concerning patient safety in blood transfusion. As blood  transfusion and donation by humans will continue to be the major source for blood and blood components, we evaluate the patient safety regarding the knowledge, and training of health care providers. A descriptive study done in four big hospitals in Khartoum State: Omdurman Maternity Hospital, Khartoum, Khartoum Bahry, and Saudi hospitals in 2011. The study was carried  on health care providers in the four hospitals who agreed to be included in the study. The data was collected by a well designed questionnaire covering the aspects of patient safety in blood bank according to standards. The data was collected by the investigators after an informed consent. Total number of 500 health care providers were included in the study. The study showed that 375(75%) of health providers knowledge and attitude regarding safety is good, but 125(25%) of them are not adherent to patient safety standards. Most of the health care providers involved in blood transfusion process  need more training concerning patient safety 328(66%). Most of the health providers did not use personal protective equipments. Health care providers know most of patient safety standards regarding blood transfusion in these hospitals.
