Introduction: The high workload of nurses can cause burnout. Burnout can occur if the number of patients admitted does not match the number of available nurses and facilities, and occurs for a long time. Burnout in nurses causes a lack of attention to the application of patient safety culture. This study aims to find out the correlation between burnout and patient safety culture among nurses at Private Hospital in Yogyakarta.
Methods: Research design was descriptive cross-sectional method. There were 58 nurses, acquired by total sampling technique. We used the MBI-questionnaire to measure burnout levels and the HSOPSC questionnaire to measure patient safety culture.
Results: The results of this study indicate that the burnout level is low as many as 58 people (100.0%), patient safety culture is fairly good as many as 41 people (70,7%) and burnout has a negative effect on patient safety culture, but has no significant relationship (p 0,200 and r -0,171).
Conclusion: The burnout level of nurses is in low category, the patient safety culture of most nurses is fairly good and burnout has a negative effect on patient safety culture, this is because when burnout is felt by an individual, it will affect all individual activities both physically and mentally. Nurses are expected to be able to manage the workload so that they can avoid burnout and cooperate with hospital management to improve patient safety culture.
