In a nutshell:  This study sought to provide evidence on how registered nurses (RNs) assess the safety of patient care at their workplace and how factors in RNs’ work environment are related to their assessments. Previous research has emphasised patient-to-nurse ratios in strengthening patient safety practices and this study complements this by emphasising RNs’ own perception of having enough staff and resources to provide quality nursing care.
