ABSTRACT

This paper aims to determine the clinical competencies and compliance to patient safety among Filipino staff nurse respondents. The independent variable was staff nurses' clinical competencies and the dependent variable was a key performance indicator (KPI) for patient safety outcomes. This descriptive-correlational study was conducted in 3 private secondary hospitals in the Philippines. From the 560,000 Filipino registered nurses, the respondents of the study included a total of 191 Filipino staff nurses, which were selected using purposive sampling (inclusion and exclusion criteria). The instrument tools underwent tool reliability, and internal consistency with Cronbach alpha scores of 0.96 and 0.78 respectively. Using SPSS software package, the following statistical formulas were utilized: mean ( ), standard deviation (SD), and Pearson Product Moment Coefficient Correlation (r). The results of the study yield that a majority of Filipinos staff nurses were young age adults, females, Bachelor degree holders, and have 1-3 years and more than 10 years of hospital experience. Most of the Filipino staff nurse respondents have very high competence ( = 3.47, SD± 0.079) to professional nursing competencies (safe nursing practice, leadership and management, and research). The majority of the Filipino staff nurse respondents have very high compliance ( = 3.13, SD± 0.439) as key performance indicators for patient safety outcomes (medication administration safety, infection control pressure ulcer prevention, fall prevention, blood management). Study findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between clinical competencies and compliance to patient safety standards among staff nurses (r = .953; p = .000).

Keywords: Nursing competencies; key performance indicators for patient safety outcomes.
