So, it is essential to eval-uate the level of hospitals safety in emer-gency situations and ensures that hospital provides an acceptable performance in criti-cal conditions. Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted to investigate the saf-ety condition of Ilam´s hospitals during di-sasters in 4 hospitals of Ilam in 2013. Observation, interview and questionnaire of hospital safety index presented by the World Health Organization (WHO) were applied in order to collect data. This form studies 145 hospital safety indices in three scopes of performance, structural and non-structural safety. Finally, the hospitals are classified in one of the three safety levels A, B, C. Data analysis was performed using SPSS version 18 and descriptive statistics. Findings: In this study, all hospitals were observed in the safety level B. Imam Khomeini hospital had the highest scores in all three above-mentioned scopes. Other-wise, the lowest score in the performance scope concerned to Taleghani hospital, and in structural and non-structural scopes, Ko-wsar and Taleghani hospitals had the lowest scores. Discussion & Conclusion: Totally, despite the differences in the scopes of functional, structural and non-structural, the safety lev-el in all hospitals was moderate (level B). However, some appropriate measures must be conducted in every scope, and the safety factors must be annually and repeatedly assessed to reach the universal standard level (A).
