Safety Walk Rounds - Clinical unit visits with a focus on patient safety; Abstract.; Background: Safety Walk Rounds are a promising strategy to promote the safety culture and optimising patient safety. The purpose of this study was to explore patient safety attributes in various clinical areas including recommendations for improvement and leadership support. Methods: Safety Walk Rounds were conducted by the chief patient safety officer based on a structured questions format to open patient safety dialogues with clinicians at the ward level. Field notes were utilized for thematic analyses and topic categorization. Results: A total of 187 clinicians (64 % nursing staff, 19 % physicians, 17 % other health care professionals) participated on the Safety Walk Rounds. The discussion findings are presented in five categories: Events & circumstances (potentially) harmful for patients; safety culture; need for local action, as well as the need for leadership support to provide safe care. Conclusion and outlook: Safety Walk Rounds across the hospitals' clinical areas delivered insight into patient safety issues and safety culture with its caregiver's engagement to provide safe care as well as action points for future improvement including leadership support.
