No sampling was done in this census study and the data were elicited from all the members of the research population. The data collection tool was a 25-item questionnaire whose validity and reliability were confirmed. The data were analyzed using SPSS 16 software. results: In the current study, 50.9% of the participants were men and 49.1% were women. The percentage scores of the staff attitude of task awareness were 67%, beliefs about the EGFE 39%, religious actions 66%, acceptance 63%, the effects of the EGFE 59%, behavior of others who gives orders 56%, and self-justification was 65%. The overall employee attitude about EGFE was 65%. Significant difference was seen between the hospital departments (P=0.010). There was no significant difference between the scores of the EFGE and the other demographic variables (P> 0.05). Conclusion: According to the findings of the study, the status of employee attitude about task awareness, religious actions, acceptance, effects, behavior of others who gives orders, self-justification, and attitude was relatively moderate. Employee attitude toward the EGFE beliefs was relatively weak. It is recommended that employees' attitude should be increased.
