Abstract

Today, it is proven that successfully managing the best quality care can lead to a reduction in costs. Quality healthcare is the direct consequence of patients receiving their desired outcomes. Therefore, offering patients’ quality care in nursing is highly important since it determines patients, families, nurses, and the healthcare organisation’s satisfaction. Measuring
the effectiveness of care is possible through surveys, which focus on patient satisfaction. In addition, a number of studies have revealed that maintaining standards is highly significant,  can be achieved via defining clear, concise and specific goals and objectives, and thus nurses at all times must deliver quality care. By doing this, patients’ physical and psychological well-being are improved, as well as being discharged from hospital earlier.  The aim of this study was to determine how nursing leadership can improve nurses’  quality of care and patient outcome  which in turn would lead to satisfaction of nurses providing better quality care in Saudi Arabia. nursing outcomes deals with a number of variables such as their behaviors and attitudes towards providing their patients with better quality care and how they perform in their job role. Patient satisfaction, on the other hand, deals with their feelings towards the level of care they are providing. In investigating this issue further, a systematic review was conducted. five of the most relevant articles were selected to help Saudi hospitals to become aware of how different styles of nursing leadership and leader to better improve nursing outcomes, since this is an unfamiliar topic in Saudi Arabia. It was found that effective nursing leaders who adopt a specific leadership style, in this context, the relational leadership style, had improved nursing outcomes and in turn resulted in improved patient satisfaction. The study concluded that without a clear leadership style, nursing leaders would find it challenging to lead their staff since such styles aim to motivate and inspire the staff to carry out their job  effectively and in so doing, would have a positive impact on the patient.
