Objective: It is aimed to study the correlation between nursing intervention and infection rate in Department of General Surgery.
Method: 160 patients, who came for treatment in the Department of General Surgery of our hospital from June 2014 to January 2016, were selected as the investigation subjects, who were divided into an observation group and a control group according to the random digital method, and either group was comprised of 80 patients. Conventional nursing was adopted for the control group, while general nursing intervention for the observation group. Then, comparative analysis was carried out for hospitalization periods, infection rates, nursing satisfactions and so on of the patients in both groups.
Results: The hospitalization period and infection rate of the observation group were lower than those of the control group, of which the difference between the two groups was significant (t=5.221, P=0.028; t=4.370, P=0.043); The nursing satisfaction of the patients in the observation group was higher than that in the control group, of which the difference between the two groups was significant, (X2=6.851, P=0.004).
Conclusion: The nursing intervention could substantially decrease the infection rate of the patients in the Department of General Surgery and improve nursing satisfaction of the patients.Author(s): Ping Yu, Rong Chen, Weijuan Yin, Fei Yin, Hong Guo
