Accident control is an important factor in reducing risks; Ensuring the health of staff and patients and efforts to prevent occupational accidents, especially in clinical settings. This study was conducted to investigate occupational accidents in three hospitals of Yazd.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive-analytical cross-sectional study that was conducted in three teaching hospitals in Yazd. A total of 186 non-physicians from different wards of these three hospitals were included in the study by simple stratified random sampling. Data collection was performed using an 18-item occupational accident questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using SPSS21 software using descriptive statistics and Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis statistical tests.
Results: Among understudy accidents, exposure to blood or body fluids showed the highest frequency while falling had the lowest frequency. The results showed that there was no relationship between gender and the number and type of accidents, but in some of the accidents, there was a significant relationship between the number and type of accidents, workplace, work experiences, educational level, shift work, and hospital type (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Because these accidents occurred at least once in each of the three selected hospitals, it is necessary to prevent these accidents. Regarding the complex nature of hospital accidents and prevention of incidents, management of hospital accidents and prevention of accidents, requires the determination of all staff and management of the hospital organization.
