The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of pre-operative visit by perioperative nurse on the anxiety level and satisfaction of the patients. The sample consisted of forty surgical, obstetrics and orthopedics patients waiting for surgical procedure at Health Science Center, Burapha University. The sample were divided into experimental and control groups. Subjects in both groups were matched according to the age, experience of operation and trait anxiety. Subjects in experimental group were visited at one hour prior to surgery by perioperative nurse. The control group was not visited. Questionnaires about anxiety and satisfaction were conducted to collect data in experimental group. Only questionnaire about anxiety was used incontrol group. The result of this study revealed that the anxiety of subjects in the experimental group was not significantly different from the control group. Subjects in the experimental group had high level of satisfaction about perioperative nurse and information.
This study suggested that perioperative nurse should visit the surgical patients before surgery in order to reduce patients anxiety and increase patients satisfaction. To improve quality of care and continuity of care, perioperative nurse should have enough time to conduct an effective assessment related to the patient’ s problems and needs, prior to surgery, therefore, the pre-operative patient may have to admit at least one day prior to surgery.
