Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the relationships among related factors and nurses’ safety attitude, and examine whether emotional intelligence as a mediator between safety attitude on leaving intention of nurses. A correlational study was conducted, utilizing the safety attitudes, emotional intelligence, and leaving intention questionnaires of 626 nurses working in the general hospital. The overall safety attitude scores of nurses working in the hemodialysis unit is the lowest including team work climate, safety climate, job satisfaction, and working conditions. Obviously, nurses working in OPD are less satisfied than working in OR/ ICU. In general, nurses working in the OR and ICU have greater safety attitude than others. Two mediating effects of emotional intelligence occurred on reduction of the influences on safety attitude. Hemodialysis nurses experienced the lowest safety attitude and related to their leaving intention and need further concern. Targeted strategies of emotional intelligence can be applied to increase positive attitude or decrease the leaving intention.
