Min Zhang, Yang Yu, Yujun Chen, Guihong Fan

Abstract


To explore the effect of comprehensive continuing nursing on the compliance, ability of daily living and quality of life of cerebral stroke patients discharged from hospital. A total of 98 cerebral stroke patients receiving treatment in our hospital from July 2015 to July 2017 are selected and divided into experimental group and control group according to the random number table method and there are 49 patients in each group. The control group receives routine continuing nursing of cerebral stroke while the experimental group receives comprehensive continuing nursing on this basis. After the intervention, the compliance of patients is evaluated using the morisky compliance scale; the ability of daily living of patients is evaluated using the Barthel's index scale; the quality of life of patients is evaluated using the quality of life comprehensive assessment scale. The compliance rate in the experimental group is 43 cases (87.76%), which is far higher than that in the control group (65.31%) and the data difference between the groups is statistically significant (P<0.05). The total independence rate of patients in the experimental group is 37 cases (75.51%), which is much higher than 26 cases in the control group (53.06%) and the data difference between the groups is statistically significant (P<0.05). The total score of patients in the experimental group is (225.59±29.77), which is higher than that of the control group (201.27±24.02) the data difference between the groups is statistically significant (P<0.05). Comprehensive continuing nursing can effectively improve the compliance, ability of daily living and quality of life of patients discharged and is worthy of clinical promotion.
