Abstract
This paper aims to explore the influencing factors affecting the quality of life of older liver disease patients and the need for inpatient care, the nursing staff can more effectively help patients improve their quality of life. A total of 134 older patients with liver diseases were enrolled in our hospital from January 2018 to June 2019, and the general baseline data, quality of life (SF-36), Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS), Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), family support, and care needs were surveyed. Univariate analysis showed SF-36 scores of older patients with liver diseases differed significantly (p<0.05) according to marital status (X1), course of disease (X2), disease diagnosis (X3), SAS (X4), SDS (X5) and family support intensity (X6) factors. Multiple linear regression analysis showed that marital status, disease diagnosis, SAS, SDS and family support were the influencing factors of quality of life of older patients with liver diseases. Nursing needs of older patients with liver diseases include disease care, psychological care needs that are associated with higher nursing needs, and lower life care needs. Marital status, disease diagnosis, SAS, SDS, and family support are the relevant factors influencing the quality of life of older patients with liver diseases. Therefore, nursing staff should provide effective nursing intervention in a timely manner according to the patient's condition and psychological needs.
