In the therapeutic setting, the ethical climate refers to conditions that facilitate ethical decision making. Some scholars believe that promoting ethical climate in health care institutions will better respond to moral stress and other causes of workplace dissatisfaction. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between ethical climate and tendency to stay at work in Jahrom operating room and anesthesia staff in 2018.
Methods and Materials:
This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed on 50 anesthesia and operating room staff of Jahrom hospitals. The data collection tool consisted of three questionnaires. The first questionnaire was about demographic information, the second was about the Olson ethical climate survey and the third was about the tendency to stay in business. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 21 and descriptive statistics (mean, percentage and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (Spearman and Kruskal-Wallis correlation coefficient).
56% of the subjects in this study were anesthesia personnel and 44% were operating room personnel. In operating room personnel, the mean score for the operating room ethical climate and all domains was above 3.5 and desirable. But in anesthesia staff, the average score for the ethical climate of the operating room and all its areas was less than 3.5 and undesirable. Of all the staff, only the median variable score of physicians' atmosphere score of 3.45 was less than 3.5. The mean score of retention level for the operating room staff was 13.63 more than the average for the anesthesia staff with an average of 13.53. The results showed that the relationship between the level of tendency to stay at work with the ethical climate of the operating room and none of its domains was significant among the personnel (p> 0.05(.
According to the results of this study, there was no significant difference between the status of ethical climate and the tendency to persist in operating room and anesthesia staff.
