dc.description.abstract The study was prompted by repeated media reports over the radio. Commentators and listeners expressed concern over the seemingly lack of adequate hygienic measures, specifically with regard to patient care en_US
dc.description.abstract To objectively quantify and describe the extent of this problem, a single objective was stated, namely to measure the quality of nursing care with regard to patient hygiene. A descriptive survey design was chosen to explore and describe the problem. A check-list was developed to observe thirty patients (the total population) over a period of one week en_US
dc.description.abstract The results indicated that certain aspects (parts) of hygienic care needed improvement. These aspects (parts) were: (a) the care of male patients' beards; (b) perineal care; and (c) mouth care. Other aspects of care were indirectly negatively influenced due to incomplete record-keeping en_US
dc.description.abstract On completion of the study recommendations were made with regard to: (a) in-service education; (b) management; and (c) research en_US
