Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine environmental stressors perceived by patients in the surgical intensive care unit and their level of satisfaction with nursing care.
Design: A descriptive cross-sectional study design was used in this study.
Methods: This study was conducted between January 2019 and June 2019 with 120 patients who were hospitalised in the surgical intensive care unit. Data collection was via a patient information form, the Intensive Care Unit Environmental Stressor Scale (ICUESS) and the Experiences of Nursing Care Scale (ENCS) component of the Newcastle Satisfaction with Nursing Scales (NSNS).
Findings: The mean ICUESS score was found to be 76.30 ±11.18. The main stressors perceived by the patients in the surgical intensive care unit were being in pain, being thirsty and sleeplessness. The ENCS mean score was 81.05 ±9.03.
Conclusion: The mean score of the ICUESS of patients was moderate and the mean score of the ENCS was good. There was a statistically significant, negative and moderate correlation between the ICUESS score and the ENCS score.
