The surgical nursing staff had the highest scores on three sub-scales. On the nursing management, there was a significant difference between surgical and ICU nursing staff. On the adequate staff and resources, medical nursing staff scored lowest when comparing with other units. The doctor-nurse relationship was poor at medical than surgical units from nurses' perception. Conclusion: The perception from nurses was different among nursing units on nursing management, adequate staff and resources, and doctor-nurse relationship.
