Date of Completion
Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology
The study used a correlational research design using purposive sampling with a total population of 92 radiologic technologists in selected hospitals in Cavite. A two-part questionnaire was used: first part of which is for the demographic profile; the second part is a self-made questionnaire to determine the knowledge, skills, and attitude on patient safety. The gathered data were subjected to statistical treatment such as frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), t-test for Independent means, Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient and Duncan’s Multiple Range Test.Based on the findings of the study, the following conclusions are drawn: 1) Majority of the respondents are male, are aged 18 to 40, with a length of service ranging from 1 to 5 years and are working in a privately owned hospital; 2) The respondents have high knowledge on patient safety. However, most of the respondents gained incorrect answers on the questions about patient identification as well as the question about three cardinal principles of radiation safety. Additionally, more than half of the respondents have wrong answers about patient falls; 3) The respondents have very high skills on patient safety; 4) The respondents have a highly positive attitude on patient safety; 5) The knowledge of the respondents on patient safety does not significantly differ when grouped according to age, sex, length of service, and type of hospital; 6) The skills of the respondents on patient safety varies significantly when grouped according to length of service, specifically the respondents with less than 1 year of service which have lower skills on patient safety as compared to those with 6 to 10 years of service. There is a significant difference in the skills on patient safety in terms of type of hospital, specifically in privately owned hospitals which have higher skills on patient safety as compared to those in the government hospitals. However, it shows no significant difference when the respondents are grouped to age and sex. Moreover, the attitude of the respondents on patient safety do not significantly differ when grouped according to age, sex, length of service, and type of hospital; 7) Knowledge on patient safety of the respondents is not significantly related with the skills and attitude on patient safety.
