Abstract

Aims To analyze the existing literature on missed nursing care associated with patient-centered and nurse-centered outcomes. Design As of September 2019, publications that assess the relationship of missed nursing care between patient-centered and nurse-centered outcomes were identified and clarified by performing a meta-analysis. Data Sources PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science for relevant studies were researched, between the establishment date and September 6, 2019. Review Methods Search terms were designed to systematically search on the electronic databases. For each review, quality, abstract-reporting completeness, full-text methodological quality. Results Nine studies met the inclusion criteria. Analysis of these data illustrated that high score of missed nursing care was positively associated with the patient adverse outcomes; particularly, it increases the possibilities of infections, medication errors, falls, and inpatient mortality. Simultaneously, the patient dissatisfaction and nurse job dissatisfaction are increased by the high score of missed nursing care. Conclusion Lowering the levels of missed nursing care may be a promising approach for improving the experiences of patients and nurses. Impact Nursing mangers should pay more attention to the nursing routine work, ensuring nursing work completely done.
