The aims of this study were to analyze the behaviors of nurses in China toward reporting safety events, the barriers to reporting, and the correlations of these aspects with hospital safety culture. A convenience sampling of 1125 nurses from 8 hospitals was performed. The perceptions of nurse managers and colleagues as well as reporting procedures played key roles in the barriers to safety event reporting. To increase the safety culture and facilitate reporting, attention should be paid to job satisfaction and recognition of nurses' stress.
