Advanced nursing culture is conducive to enhance the sense of responsibility and cohesion. The author has hypothesized that heritage of traditional Chinese culture has complementary effects for constructing the culture of ëpatient safety.í The aim of the study has been to evaluate the nursing staffís perception on operating regulations, as well as protecting patient safety, and to explore innovation achievement by combining heritage of traditional culture and nursing culture. It has also tried to explore an effective pathway for cultivating advanced nursing culture through static regulation and dynamic management system, which can summarize a series of methods for building nursing culture up. Methods: Data being analyzed was from Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM. The study methods were both theoretical and practice, combined with qualitative and quantitative analysis. Field investigation of nursing culture construction was done at Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM. The statistical evaluation was done by using SPSS 17.0 statistic software to input and analyze the data, which was compared with Agency of Healthcare Research and Quality's 2010 database. Amos-7 was applied to perform confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The results depict systemic explanation of the theory of nursing culture's origin and developmental stage, mission, and other elements. From the point of nursing culture construction practice at Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM, we have found several key issues: improvement of the institutional system, optimization of the management system, set up of quality framework, and strengthening continued education, enhancement of nursing brand, establishment of standardization, focus on traditional and innovative thinking, and practice of skills. Comparing the result of ëhospital survey on patient safetyí with AHRQ 2010 database, the nurseís perception of ëpatient safetyí at Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM's is at higher level. Conclusion: To achieve progression of contemporary nursing culture, nursing staff should play the role from understanding the essence of traditional Chinese culture. Based on it, they can apply Western idea and methods of management, deepen the connotation of nursing and humane care, enhance the level of nursing culture, and highlight the value of nursing work. ëPatient safety cultureí should be encouraged, which includes performing incident reporting system, strengthening personnel training, enhancing communication effectiveness, and promoting multidisciplinary cooperation
