Abstract: 

Hospital ethical climate is typically an organizational climate, comprising interpersonal relationships amongst treatment personnel as well as personnel’s rapport with patients and their families. Since ethical climate could be influenced by various working conditions and managerial policies, it may vary from one organization to the next. The present study was designed and implemented to investigate nurses’ perception of the ethical climate governing teaching hospitals in a centrally located town in Iran. This was a descriptive-sectional study using Olson’s hospital ethical climate questionnaire conducted on 370 nurses employed at selected hospitals in 2012.
Study results revealed mean nurses’ perception of the hospitals ethical climates was (3.22
±0.78). The most favorable climate was found among the management (3.56±0.98), and the least among doctors (2.83±0.78). Also, ethical climate significantly correlated with gender (P=0.05) and with marital status (P=0.001). Given the ethical climate score obtained in this study (that was lower than that obtained in previous studies), and given the importance of ethical climate and consequences of its deficiency, it is seems necessary for hospital officials and policy makers to adopt appropriate plans to enforce more favorable ethical climate in hospitals.
