Summary:
The purpose of this study was to describe the caring behaviors incorporated into the practice of perioperative nursing. Utilizing a descriptive survey design, this study provided 104 perioperative nurse participants who were members of the AORN with the Caring Behaviors Inventory (CBI). Data collected in this study supported the use of the CBI as a reliable instrument for measuring caring behaviors as measured by a Cronbach's alpha coefficient of.9486. The top five caring behaviors that emerged were (1) showing respect; (2) treating patient information confidentially; (3) appreciating the patient as a human being; (4) showing concern; (5) and supporting the patient. The study revealed that perioperative nurses do incorporate caring behaviors into their practice that are both patient-centered and action oriented. These behaviors are similar to those previously described by nurses in other specialties. Implications for nurse education and practice are presented, as are recommendations for further research.
