An assessment of nursing requirements of patients with malignant neoplastic diseases



Ugeskrift for Laeger 143(25): 1617-1619



Patients [80] with terminal cancer and their nursing requirements were registered prospectively during a period of 6 mo. Sixty-nine of these required nursing. When this was graduated according to a point-system, 38 patients or 47.5% required a great deal of nursing care. A total of 3/4 of the patients died during the period of investigation, 8 further patients died during the next 6 mo. A total of 95% died while hospitalized. Discharge from the hospital was only possible in 30% of the cases and this was most frequently temporary. Of 38 patients with very great nursing requirements, only 6 could be discharged. Of 31 patients with slighter nursing requirements, 13 were discharged. A total of 85% of patients suffering from intractable malignant basic disease had nursing requirements. In 47.5% the physical nursing requirements were very great; these nursing requirements were of brief duration (3/4 < 6 mo.). A total of 95% of the patients died in the hospital.
