of current study showed a full mediation effect of organization climate on the relationship between high performance work System (HPW) and overall perception of patient safety (β = 0.282, t = 4.833, p < 0.01), according to Baron and Kenny’s (1986) method. The differences between the findings of these studies and the results of this study, is that it was hypothesizing the mediating effect between HPWS and outcome in terms of patients’ safety rather than performance. Therefore, the findings adds to the view about the complex inter relations between HPWS, climate and organizational outcome. 6.4 Contributions of the Study In this study, possible organizational factors affecting patient safety in public hospitals in Saudi Arabia have been raised. To date, the current study is one of the very few studies conducted in the Arab world to examine such relationships. Hence, this study is an attempt to add to the existing knowledge by examining the mediating effect of organizational climate on the relationship between high performance work system and outcome (represented by patient safety). The current study also has considered the antecedent effect of transformational leadership on HPWS and reporting system. In the following sub-sections, contributions of this study are elaborated. 6.4.1 Theoritical Contributions This study attempts to increase the understanding of the relationship between transformational leadership, HPWS, organizational climate, effective reporting system and patient safety.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
