Effects of clinical nursing pathway on postoperative satisfaction and quality of life of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage
Objective: To explore the effects of clinical nursing pathway (CNP) on the postoperative satisfaction and quality of life (QOL) of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).
Methods: This is a retrospective study. Eighty patients with SAH admitted to Baoding No.1 Central Hospital from June 2021 to January 2023 were prospectively divided into a observation group and a control group by random numbers. The control group was given routine nursing, and the observation group was additional given CNP. The prognosis, cognitive function, QOL, self-care ability, nursing satisfaction and the incidence of complications were compared between the two groups.
Results: After CNP nursing, the GCS and MMSE scores in the observation group were higher than those in the control group 14 days, one month and six months after the operation; and the difference was statistically significant (p< 0.05). Six months after the operation, the SS-QOL and Ability of daily living (ADL) scores in both groups were significantly improved compared with those before the intervention; and the improvement in the observation group was significantly better than that in the control group; and the difference was statistically significant(p<0.05). The nursing satisfaction score in the observation group was significantly higher than in the control group. The total incidence of complications in the observation group was lower than that in the control group.
Conclusions: The CNP intervention in perioperative period of SAH patients has remarkable clinical effect, can improve the pertinence and efficiency of nursing, promote patients to recover as soon as possible, significantly improve the QOL of patients,and is worthy of clinical popularization.
