A qualitative service evaluation of nurses’ satisfaction with care in wards implementing hourly nursing rounds
McNeil, Margaret (2011) A qualitative service evaluation of nurses’ satisfaction with care in wards implementing hourly nursing rounds. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
BACKGROUND: The delivery of safe quality patient care with attention to addressing basic care needs is pertinent to the current concerns about care within the National Health Service (NHS). The introduction of hourly nursing rounds is one way in which such concerns can be addressed. Hourly nursing rounds involve the nurse routinely visiting every patient every hour to address the immediate needs of the patient based on the 3P’s which involves, pain, potty (continence) and positioning. This concept was brought across from the United States of America, and is now being implemented in trusts across the United Kingdom. The researcher was given the opportunity to explore how well this system is working in practice within two large teaching hospitals in a particular NHS Trust.
