Abstract

This study replicates Cronin and Harrison's (1988) study which examined nurse caring behaviors perceived by myocardial infarction (MI) patients (n = 40) using the Caring Behaviors Assessment (CBA). Reliability ranged from 0.69 to 0.89. Findings support Cronin and Harrison's study (1988), with items as "knows how to handle equipment", "check my condition closely", and "knows how to give shots, IV's, etc." as most important nurse caring behaviors. "Talk to me about my life outside the hospital" and "visit me if I move to another hospital unit" were identified as least important nurse caring behaviors. No findings at the p = 0.05 were noted. Critical Care Nurses need awareness of patient perceptions of important nurse caring behaviors. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
