Abstract:

The concept of quality in health is defined as providing efficient, effective, safe and secure, fair, patient and patient relatives-based health services at the promised time. The "Management of Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Hazards" standard, which is included in the Quality Standards in Health-Hospital Edition hospital set, specifies the prevention, harm reduction and improvement activities for these hazards that will arise inside and outside the hospital. In this context, hospitals are held responsible in line with their roles determined by the ministry, by ensuring the safety of patients, their relatives and employees, including environmental safety. The main purpose of the master's thesis research is to ensure that the hospital staff who will be involved in the management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) hazards adapt to the disaster plan and to create a model for "CBRN Hazards Management" in line with the Health Quality Standards Version Six, to present its positive reflections and to share with health institutions. In this context, the descriptive and cross-sectional research questionnaire was applied to a total of 195 health personnel working in Çiğli Training and Research Hospital between November 2020 and April 2021. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) for Windows 26.0 licensed software was used in the analysis of the data obtained in the study. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistical methods (Percentage, Mean, Standard deviation), t-test and one-way variance (ANOVA) test. When the answers of the participants who accepted to participate in the master's thesis research survey are analyzed, the service provided at regular intervals, starting from the orientation trainings, in order to better understand the process, that the awareness of the CBRN Hazards management standard has not yet been formed within the framework of the Health Quality Standards Sub-version, and that the knowledge level and awareness-raising activities should be started urgently. It has been seen that it is necessary to provide trainings for this standard in internal and refresher trainings.
