Background and Aim: Offering health care by hospitals in critical situations is of great importance. Although after a disaster hospitals may be destroyed as well, many people go to the nearest hospital to get emergency medical services. Thus, hospital safety is an important issue for promotion of patient safety in the communities. Hence, in this study, hospital safety in some hospitals in Tehran in 2012 was evaluated. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed in Imam-Hossein, Taleghani, Modarres, Shohada, and Loghman Hospitals.
