Abstract


Aim: To identify the defining characteristics in patients receiving immediate post-operatory care after prostatectomy. Methods: This is a quantitative, transversal and descriptive study performed on 50 patients during the immediate post-operatory care after prostatectomy in a College hospital of a city located in the northeast region of Brazil. Results: 53 defining characteristics were found related especially to the physiological and security needs of the patient, such as problems regarding ambulation, self-care, pain, sight, hearing, sleeping, understanding and intestinal patterns. Of the total, 15 characteristics were present in all patients. Discussion: The defining characteristics found in all patients were linked to ambulation and self-care. These elements emphasize the limitations of the patients to perform daily tasks independently. Conclusion: The defining characteristics found are important hints to help nursing diagnoses. Based on priority diagnosis, it is possible to plan and implement systematized nursing assistance.
