ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify factors influencing on nurses’ performance for infection prevention in small and medium-sized hospitals. Participants were 219 nurses who were working in small and medium- sized hospitals in Seoul. Data were collected from May to June of 2016 through a self-report structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe test, Person's correlation coefficients, and Hierarchical multiple regression analysis using the SPSS 23.0 software. The nurses’ perception of exposure to infection (β=.80) was found to have an impact on the nurses' performance for infection prevention, with an explanatory power of 61.1%. The findings of this study suggest the development of an infection control program that focuses on improving the nurses’ perception of exposure to infection in small and medium- sized hospitals.
