Nursing Case Management has motivated nurses to examine the effects of care provided to patients, and to devise means of improving this care. The success of this nursing care delivery model is well documented among a variety of acute and chronically ill patients. Utilizing nonparametric ANOVA for comparison of two means, this study investigates the outcome of the implementation of a nursing
case management model on an orthopedic unit of a local hospital. A convenience sample (N=149) of hip-fracture patients for two separate eight months charting periods were used. The first period was pre-case management and the second period was after the implementation of nursing managed care on the unit. Results suggested that nursing case management was effective in reducing the total length of hospital stay and post-operative days significantly.
