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 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.
