How to provide a patient-oriented medical service in hospitals has been emerged as an essential issue in China. The current study aims to provide implementations for hospital managers to enhance medical quality by investigating the perceptions of nurses regarding patient safety culture. Sexton et al. ’s safety attitudes questionnaire (SAQ) is used to assess the patient safety culture of nurses in a Grade III Level A hospital in China. The results illustrate that working conditions are essential components to establish a good atmosphere of patent-oriented medical service. Furthermore, the status of pressure perceived by nurses should not be ignored to reduce medical errors and malpractice during the medical procedures.
