Abstract

Objective: To investigate the effect of high-quality nursing on negative emotions and hope levels after oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS). Methods: A prospective study involving 120 patients who underwent OMS from December 2018 to January 2020 was conducted. The study subjects were classified into a study group and control group with 60 in each, using a random number table. Routine nursing was applied in the control group, while the study group was given high-quality nursing. Psychological status, hope levels, quality of life (QOL), complications and satisfaction rate were compared between patients in the two groups before and after intervention. Results: After intervention, the scores of HAMA (Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale) and HAMD (Hamilton Depression Rating Scale) of the two groups were both significantly reduced, and the decrease was significantly greater in the study group (all P<0.05). After intervention, the scores of Herth Hope Index (HHI) and Generic quality of life Inventory-74 (GQOLI-74) in the two groups were both elevated, and the increase was significantly greater in the study group (all P<0.01). As compared with the control group, the total incidence of complications in study group was significantly lower (P=0.04), while the satisfaction rate with nursing was higher (P=0.032). Conclusion: High-quality nursing, with low incidence of complications and high overall satisfaction rate, can significantly relieve adverse emotions and promote QOL after OMS.
