Abstract

This study assesses the perception of the selected community barangays in the Philippines. This task entailed identifying the “Perception” of the community in terms of factors to consider if patients will submit to hospitalization, determinants of quality patient health care, factors that boost patients' recovery, expected government programs, and self-image problems due to their diagnosis.

Aims: The study aimed to assess the perception of the community on Quality Patient Nursing Care Theory with the view to developing essential further recommendations for the community, staff nurses, doctors, hospital administrators, and National Government Department of Health officials.

Scope and Limitation of the Study: The study focused on the perception of the community before they will visit the hospital for check-ups, follow-up of care, or for confinement. The study was conducted last March 2024 into two selected barangay areas in the Philippines: Barangay 187 in Tala Caloocan City and Barangay Sta. Rita in Bacnotan La Union Province. Barangay 187 was chosen because of its proximity to Dr. Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital and Barangay Sta. Rita was chosen because of its remoteness from the Provincial hospital.

Research Design: The study employed a Quantitative Descriptive nonparametric method design of the study. The research was conducted in selected barangays in Caloocan City and La Union.  Simple random sampling - random draws was used and a total of 100 respondents were selected from two selected areas in Caloocan City and in La Union Province.   

Results: The mean for the parameter on Quality Patient Nursing Care Theory perceived as “Important” was 100 percent for Barangay 187 and 100 percent for Barangay Sta. Rita. Barangay 187 in Caloocan City and Barangay Sta. Rita in La Union both shared their perception that Quality Patient Nursing Care Theory is important with percentage of 100.  Therefore both Barangays had the same perception of this new emerging theory of QUALITY PATIENT NURSING CARE  states that “The factors to be considered if patients will submit to hospitalization or not, is determined by the quality patient health care and factors that boost patients’ recovery with the help of expected government programs to eliminate self-image problems due to their diagnosis” is important.

Conclusion: The study concludes that both Barangays had the same perception on this new emerging theory of QUALITY PATIENT NURSING CARE  states that “The factors to be considered if patients will submit to hospitalization or not, is determined by the quality patient health care and factors that boost patients’ recovery with the help of expected government programs in order to eliminate self-image problems due to their diagnosis” is important. Every variable of this theory was uttered by the patients in qualitative study, and it was properly assessed by the community through a quantitative study that the researcher may conclude that this theory has a strong foundation that spearheaded through its themes and fountain-headed by its categories which is supported by patients’ utterances.
