Abstract: Patient safety is a major concern for all health care providers worldwide. For creating patient safety culture the attitudes, values and beliefs of the members of the health care institutions towards patient safety should be improved. The study is expected to assess the culture of patient safety at Teaching Hospital Mahamodara - Galle (THM) and, Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (HSOPSC) questionnaire was used as the study instrument. The responsibility of creating a culture of safety belongs to all employees in a hospital; however, It will be successful only the involvement of senior management. In order to understand where to focus efforts in building this environment, hospital senior management must understand the opinions and beliefs of the employees regarding the safety culture of their hospital, before initiating a health and safety program.
