Postoperative pain relief, from the patients' and the nurses' point of view.
In this prospective, consecutive study, 191 patients were interviewed before and after surgery (orthopaedic, gynaecological, abdominal and urological operations) about their attitude to and the quality of received pain relief, respectively.
In addition, nurses working in the surgical units involved in the study were asked to answer a questionnaire covering attitudes to postoperative pain and pain treatment.
Of the patients, 47% were in pain at the time of the postsurgical interview, 10% had not any analgesic prescribed at all and 15% had received less than prescribed.
