ABSTRACT

Organizational structure has strong influence on all hospitals; besides


becoming an identity, it can also be a reference and guidance for nurses behavior.
Correlation between organizational culture and nurses performance has positive
impact on a hospital where organization culture can guide nurses to be good ones.
The objective of the research was to find out the correlation between organizational
structure (involvement, consistency, adaptability, and mission) and nurses
performance at RSUD Langsa. The research used analytic method with cross
sectional design. The population was 153 government employee nurses who were on
duty in the Inpatient Wards of RSUD Langsa, and all of them were used as the
samples (total sampling technique).
The result of the research showed that 77 respondents (50.3%) had bad
organizational culture, 57 respondents (37.3%) had good organizational culture, and
19 respondents (12.4%) had moderate organizational culture. In the consistency
culture, 66 respondents (43.1%) had consistency culture to take liability and
carefulness in doing their job, 63 respondents (41.2%) had lack of consistency
culture, and 24 respondents (15.7%) had moderate consistency culture. In the
organizational adaptability culture, 58 respondents (37.9%) had moderate
organizational adaptability culture, 57 respondents (37.3%) had good organizational
adaptability culture, and 38 respondents (24.8%) had bad organizational
adaptability culture. In the organizational mission culture, 65 respondents (42.5%)
had moderate organizational mission culture, 58 respondents (37.9%) had good
organizational mission culture, and 30 respondents (19.6%) had bad organizational
mission culture. It was also found that the variables of involvement, consistency,
adaptability, and mission influenced nurses performance at RSUD Langsa which
was indicated from the difference of p-value from value (0.05). If p< indicated
that the variables had correlation. Involvement had p=0.001, adaptability had
p=0.055, and mission had p=0.026.
It is recommended that the hospital management, in implementing
organizational culture, involve nurse practitioners in making the policy on nursing,
motivate nurses to provide the best service for patients, and remind nurses about
hospital vision and mission as the guidance in providing services according to the
policy of the hospital, and increase coordination between team and other
departments in hospitals.
