In 2006 an extensive survey took place in all hospitals of Lombardia, to assess, through inspections, the safety conditions and the efficiency of the organisations invested to assure that. During these inspections were evaluated 6 safety sections and hospital organization and efficiency, by means of a questionnaire. The aim was to assess the internal consistency of questionnaire sections, the presence of differences of such scores among public, private non-profit and profit hospitals and the correlations among safety scores and among these latter and efficiency indexes. Significant differences for size factors and efficiency indexes have been pointed out among different types of hospitals. Instead, safety scores showed good internal consistency and have been resulted statistically significant correlated in most cases. For all types of hospital have been observed high values for safety scores, with exception of occupational health service, better organized in public hospitals, and of safety conditions of worker from external agencies, which have been displayed low. This last consideration stick out the need to pay more attention to safety conditions of these workers.
