Abstract

This study used a self-designed questionnaire about a nursing ethic code (NEC) to investigate
medical personnel and clients’ perception of the importance of nursing ethic code. Fifty-six hospitals were randomly selected from qualified medical centers, regional and local hospitals. A total number of 49 hospitals participated in the study. The questionnaires were sent to 760 physicians, 1520 patients and 1690 nurses. The percentage of returned questionnaires was 87.48%. The results are as follows:
1. Both medical personnel and clients reported “In the case of a medical emergency, the immediate emergency care that should be given depends on the situation, and a doctor should be contacted immediately.” as the most impotance nursing ethic code.
2. The means of 38 items of the questionnaire (NEC) reported by nurses were all above 4.10, indicating the importance of nursing ethic code. Doctors’ means of 36 items were above 4.04. Although the means of the other two items were 3.99 and 3.83, they were both close to the high score of importance. From the patients’ point of view, means of 35 items more than 4.10 and the means of the three other items were 3.93, 3.92, and 3.76.
3. The means drawn from all of the physician’s, nurses’, and patients’ point of view presented 37 items above 4.012. The only other one’s mean (3.898) is so close to the 4.0 mark as to make the results on all 38 items unanimous. The differences among the three groups in the study are limited. Therefore, it is suggested that the contents of nursing ethic code presented in this study could be developed as the official nursing ethic code for the Republic of China in the future.
