A new study published in Trends in Medical Research delves into the clinical effectiveness of two nursing care delivery models for patients undergoing elective hip surgery. The study compares patients’ perceptions of nurse caring behaviors and satisfaction between primary nursing care (PNC) and team nursing care (TNC) models, both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Results indicate a significant correlation between patients’ perceptions of nursing care behaviors and their satisfaction levels. PNC patients prioritize quality of caring behaviors, while TNC patients highly rate technical caring behaviors. Despite some limitations, the study suggests that both nursing care models achieve excellent results, emphasizing the importance of considering diverse patient expectations in delivering high-quality care.
