A new system, Nursing Care Recording (NCR), for the recording of nursing care in a general ICU is presented.
NCR classifies ICU patients according to their need for intensive nursing care.
Comparing the NCR with the therapeutic intervention scoring system (TISS), a correlation coefficient of 0.60 was found.
The main difference between the two systems was related to recording procedures allowing changes in nursing intensity within a 24-h period, reflecting patient improvement due to therapy, which was detected by NCR but not by TISS.
