This study was to examine the change of stress and nursing needs in preterm labor women after hospitalization. METHOD: Forty seven women with preterm labor who were admitted in two university hospitals participated in the survey and they were completed the questionnaires on admission day and 5thday after admission. Questionnaires included in modified Antepartum Hospital Stressor Inventory (AHSI) and Nursing Needs for Preterm Labor. The collected data were analyzed by paired t-test and Pearson correlation test. RESULT: The stress level was not decreased significantly after hospitalization. Among them, the stresses about fetus and medical staff were decreased significantly after hospitalization, but those about pregnant women, husband and environment were increased significantly after hospitalization. The difference in the level of nursing needs between the two different days was not significant except the physical needs. The total level of stress and nursing needs were correlated significantly on the 5th day after hospitalization.
These results indicate that stress and nursing needs of preterm labor women undergo changes after hospitalization. Therefore, development of the program being followed by stressors which change from day to day and further studies are required in order to examine the decreasing of the stress.
