    This cross-sectional study, published in Cureus, was conducted among 423 nurses working at tertiary care hospitals in the Al-Jouf region in Saudi Arabia. The authors note that participants valued the aspects of teamwork within units, organisational learning-continuous improvement, and overall perceptions of patient safety as areas of strength and important elements of patient safety culture. However, they also highlighted areas of concern that need improvement, such as nonpunitive response to errors, handoffs and transitions, communication openness, staffing, and frequency of events reported.

    This document sets out guidelines for recommended nurse/midwife to patient ratios in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It describes the rationale for introducing national regulations for safe staffing ratios, considers concerns and challenges in this respect, and then outlines specific ratios in different areas of care. This has been produced by the Saudi Patient Safety Center, in collaboration with the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties and the Saudi Nurses Association.

    This is an analysis of medication errors from January 2018 to December 2019 reported at a university teaching hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, aimed at identifying whether medication errors are significantly different between day shifts, night shifts, during weekdays and weekends. It found that there was a statistically significant difference between medication errors and day of the week, with a higher number of medication errors happening at the weekend. It also found that during weekends, medication errors were more likely to occur at the night shift compared to the day shift. The authors suggest that timing of medication errors incidence is an important factor to be considered for improving the medication use process and improving patient safety.

    This study in Risk Management and Healthcare Policy aimed to explore healthcare workers’ perceptions of patient safety culture at primary healthcare centres in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, and the factors that influence them. It also aimed to identify the challenges of adopting patient safety culture in these centres. The study findings highlight a number of areas for improvement, particularly in relation to event reporting, non-punitive responses, and openness in communication. The authors highlight that error reporting should not just be considered a means of learning from mistakes, but should also be considered the first step towards preventing injury and improving patient safety. They highlight the need to eliminate three crucial elements associated with errors - blame, fear, and silence - in order to build a safety culture.
