RABIN, Eliane Goldberg et al. Application of the MISSCARE scale in an Oncology Service: a contribution to patient safety. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2019, vol.53, e03513.  Epub 02-Dez-2019. ISSN 1980-220X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/s1980-220x2018025403513.

Objective:

To investigate the prevalence of and reasons for missed nursing care in oncology units.

Method:

A cross-sectional study was conducted at inpatient oncology units at a private hospital. Eighty-three professionals from the nursing team took part. The MISSCARE instrument and a sociodemographic questionnaire were administered. Simple descriptive statistics were used for analyses. Pearson's chi-square test was used to detect associations between variables.

Results:

The care tasks missed most frequently were assisting with toileting needs within 5 minutes of a request (57.8%), ambulation 3 times per day or as ordered (44.6%), and turning patients every 2 hours (36.1%). The main reasons for missed care were related to communication: tension or communication breakdowns within the nursing team, and the caregiver responsible off unit or unavailable (both 66.2%).

Conclusions:

there is a need to develop nursing interventions that neutralize and/or reduce the negative results of this missed care in order to improve the quality of care provided to cancer patients.
