Statement of the Problem: Recently, more importance has been given to the human factor and the organizational climate due to their influence on the motivation of the professionals and the improvement of performance. Some studies indicate that job satisfaction may be related to patient safety. Aim: To evaluate the relationship between Safety Culture and Job Satisfaction in a medium-stay hospital, showing the relationships between the dimensions that define both constructs and identifying the dimensions with the greatest impact on both variables. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Cross-sectional study conducted in 2015, using the Basque Health Service Job Satisfaction Survey and the Spanish version of the "Hospital Survey on Patient Safety" questionnaire (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality). Result Variables: High Job Satisfaction and High Degree of Perceived Security (score ≥75th percentile). Predictor Variables: Socio-demographic characteristics and perception of the evaluated dimensions. The association between variables was quantified by adjusted Odds Ratio and the 95% Confidence Interval. Findings: The mean Job Satisfaction was 7.21 (SD = 2.01) and the mean of Perceived Safety was 7.48 (SD = 1.98). The 75th percentile of the distribution in both cases was 9. The socio-demographic variables had little significance, while a positive perception of many of the considered dimensions was associated with high perception of the result variables. In the data analysis were obtained multiple significant correlations and cross-relations between the dimensions that define both constructs, as well as between the degree of satisfaction of the dimensions considered and the outcome variables. Conclusion & Significance: The dimensions that define Work Satisfaction and Safety Culture present cross-relationships with each other and with the outcome variables, indicating that both constructs are related. These results reinforce the idea that if an adequate climate is created and Job Satisfaction increases, health workers improve their performance and increase Patient Safety.
