Abstract

In this paper we investigated relationships between creative mental set and rule-violating action with a questionnaire for 218 hospital workers. We have executed an exploratory factor analysis. These results revealed five factors for creative mental set; curiosity, minutiae, inquiry, sensitivity and courage, and three factors for rule-violating action; regulation rule violating, local rule violating and self-style. Correlation analyses and multiple regression analysis indicated a negative relation between curiosity and regular rule violating. Also, negative relations between minutiae, inquiry and local rule violating action was yielded. Furthermore, an average score of local rule violating is significantly higher in [high and excellent care] climate than those in other climates by analysis of variance. These results are integrated for a necessity of safety rule. That is, an unnecessary rule should be arranged and content of absolutely necessary rule has been continuingly improved by invention of working sites.
