The behaviour of nursing staff in each ward of a psychiatric hospital was observed at 5-min intervals for between 7 and 10 h per day for 10 days.
The nurses'behaviour was equally divided between interacting with patients, interacting with staff, solitary task oriented behaviour and other behaviours.
There was less staff-patient interaction in the acute ward than in the long-term and psychogeriatric wards and senior nurses interacted less with patients and engaged in more solitary task oriented behaviour.
Of the interactions with patients, almost 25% were rated as positive and only 0.3% negative.
In the long-term wards almost 47% of the interactions were positive.
