Objective: To evaluate the influence of individualized nursing care on Chinese postpartum women. Methods: We invited 182 participants to join our study, who are childbirth in the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University, their childbirth time is from April 2016 to October 2019. They were randomly assigned to control group (n=91) and intervention group (n=91), the two group receive different nursing services, such as individualized nursing care and traditional nursing services. We use Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS), Self-rating depression scale (SDS) and other questionnaires to collect the data from participants, the data include patient comfort status, patient satisfaction status, anxiety status and depression status. Result: In comfort research, the comfort status of most patient is 0 level in control group and intervention group (n=44 & n=56). On the other hand, the control group had more 1 level assessment in this result (n=22). In satisfaction report, the performance of individualized nursing care is better than traditional nursing services in satisfaction [86 (94.5%) vs 77 (84.6%)]. In SDS and SAS research, The intervention group had greater improvement than that of control group in the SAS as the result of intervention group lowered scores even more. Conclusion: the individualized nursing care have great improvement to improve hospital satisfaction and mental health of patients. But the individualized nursing care has little effect on improving patient comfort.
