CAMACUARI CARDENAS, Feliman Salomé. Factors Associated with the Application of Biosafety Measures Taken by Nursing Professionals. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2020, vol.36, n.3, e3348.  Epub 01-Sep-2020. ISSN 0864-0319.

Introduction:

Biosafety measures are preventive standards that the health personnel must apply to avoid contagion due to exposure to infectious agents that can cause harm.

Objective:

To determine factors that intervene in the application of biosafety measures by the nursing professional.

Methods:

Quantitative, descriptive and cross-sectional study. The study population consisted of 30 nursing professionals who work in a Surgical Center at Dos de Mayo National Hospital in Lima, Peru, from March to July 2019. The technique used was the survey, and the instrument, a structured questionnaire. For the calculation of statistical reliability, Cronbach's alpha test, expert criteria and Pearson's “r” were used.

Results:

Regarding the factors involved in the application of biosafety measures by the nursing professional, 56.70% presented unfavorable factors and 43.30%, favorable factors. Regarding personal factors, 66.70% presented unfavorable factors, and 33.30%, favorable factors; and with regard to institutional factors, 53.30% presented favorable factors, and 46.70%, unfavorable factors.

Conclusions:

The unfavorable factors that intervened in the application of biosafety measures by the nursing professional were young adulthood, without specialty studies, and not having training in biosafety. The favorable factors, in a minority, were having an epidemiology office, permanent supervision in the application of biosafety measures, and having risk-free settings.
