Abstract

Introduction: The Protocols of protection for hemato-oncological patient care are based on the adequacy of existing and scientifically validated scales.

Objective: To describe the advances related to the implementation of protection protocols for the care of hemato-oncological patients from the point of view of Nursing Leadership in the services of the FUNDALEU Foundation.

Methods: A non-experimental, observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted in May 2020.

Results: In terms of sociodemographic variables, the sample was represented mostly by women, aged between 38 and 45 years, graduates who have worked for more than 7 years in the service. Regarding the means recorded for different aspects of knowledge of protocols adapted for patients in the institution, it is worth noting that all of them were positive. It was found that for the three items (cytopenia, mental status and sensory deficit) the ANOVA test had statistical significance (p<0.001) between these groups. With the assessment of the fall risk protocol, the corresponding care can be planned and carried out (p < 0.001).

Conclusions: there are no difficulties in terms of knowledge about the use of the care protocol for hemato-oncological patients. The nursing attitudes point out as difficulties that the items cytopenia, mental status and sensory deficit are not sufficient, so that sometimes the updates with respect to the fall risk protocol are not up to date.
