Patient-care Study Listens To The Kids

Following up on a post from last week, Misti Crane, of The Columbus Dispatch, reported on the results of an INQRI supported study that examined children's satisfaction with nursing care. The study, conducted by INQRI grantee, Dr. Nancy Ryan-Wenger, found that children were concerned about how often a nurse checked on them and explained instances when children might feel sad, scared or annoyed when nurses did things that hurt, or when they woke them up. This article also featured a snippet from Heather Kelley, INQRI Program Associate, in which she discussed the importance of measuring quality through patient satisfaction.
