[Clinical session research presentation] Patients' safety agendas only involve the role of health professionals and organizational systems, the role of patients' in maintaining their own safety is usually missing from these agendas. Patient safety is also on the health agenda in Saudi Arabia.  Saudi nurses compose only 22% of the nursing workforce. Nurses from all over the world are recruited to work in Saudi Arabia. Patients in Saudi hospitals are therefore cared for by nurses from a variety of cultures some with very little knowledge of transcultural nursing.  Saudi Arabia is the heart of Islam for Muslim's all over the world.  Religion and culture play an important role in Saudi patient?s lives.  This descriptive study will focus on assessing nurses' perceptions of Saudi patients? cultural and religious practices that might affect them adversely. This is will be a descriptive study. Nurses working in two Saudi hospitals: one private and on public will be interviewed. Data collection methods will include: review of incident reports, focus group discussions, interviews and questionnaires. The findings of the study will have implications not only nurses caring for these patients but also Saudi, Arab and Muslim patients'.  Recommendations will be made to assist nurses to provide culturally competent care, ensure the safety of their patients while allowing them to maintain their religious and cultural practices. It will also provide recommendations to assist in educating patients on which of their cultural and religious practices that may adversely affect their safety and how they can modify them in order to protect themselves.
