In nursing world, the opportunities when a nurse with a different background interchanges increased. Regardless of a country, it may be said that the safety management of the patient is a main premise of the nursing. We focused on the infection management and compared problem-solving thought for the infection management of the Indonesian nurse and Japanese nurse using 4M4E model. As a result, we understood that they were common basically. The nurse Indonesian tended to demand the intervention to an individual and an offer of the knowledge. On the other hand, the Japanese tended to consider systematically. The expansion of each other’s fields of vision would be expected by using each strength and continuing cross-cultural communication.
