Objective: This study aimed at discussing influences of combined clinical nursing path on negative emotions and living quality of patients co-infected with Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
Method: A total of 84 patients co-infected with UC and lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage and admitted to our hospital from March 2016-2017 were selected as research objects and randomly divided into observation and control groups with 42 patients in each group. The control group was given conventional medical nursing, whereas the observation group was provided with pertinent clinical nursing practices, such as diet nursing, health education, and psychological intervention, based on the control group. Nursing effects on the two groups were observed and compared.
Results: The two groups did not show any difference in anxiety and depression scores before combined clinical nursing path (P>0.05). After corresponding nursing measures were respectively taken, anxiety 36.26 ± 9.54 and depression 37.90 ± 8.03 scores of the observation group were both significantly lower than those of the control group. Comparative differences between the two groups presented statistical significance (P<0.05). The two groups exhibited difference in distribution of satisfaction degrees (P<0.05). Satisfaction degree (95.24%) in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group (76.19%) according to further statistical analysis, and comparative differences between the two groups indicated statistical significance (P<0.05). Living quality score 3.97 ± 1.04 of the observation group was significantly higher 3.11 ± 0.95 than that of the control group after nursing, and comparative differences between the two groups yielded statistical significance (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Combined clinical nursing path can significantly improve negative emotions and living quality of patients co-infected with UC and lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage.Author(s): Nie Hu, Xue-Jiao Fu, Hua-Rong Guo, Xiao-Yan Gu
