Nowadays Most hospitals replace their paper-based medical records with Electronic Health Records or update their old Hospital Information systems (HISs). A descriptive study of nurses as end users of these systems can be helpful to design better systems and therefore achieve more advantages like more patients' safety. Materials & Methods: To assay the attitudes' of nurses toward Hospital Information systems, 400 nurses were asked to estimate whether they agree or disagree with a set of statements for each of the three diffusion of innovation theory attributes (relative advantages, complexity, and compatibility). 303 questionnaires were completed and analyzed by SPSS (Statistical Product and Services Solution, version 18). Result: A large share of the nurses agreed that the HIS system is faster (92. 7%) and easier than paper records (90. 1%), saves time (81. 1%), and increases the legibility of the data (90. 8%). 55% agreed that the system leads to computer-related problems (software and hardware), and 51. 5% agreed that HIS leads to inhumane errors. A low percentage of the nurses (13. 9%) agreed that the system leads to more adverse drug events. Conclusion: According to our results nurses' attitudes were found to be positive about using HIS system to improve clinical documentation. Moreover results can help managers understand key consideration affecting HIS development and use and may be applied as a reference for system development and improvement
