This study was to evaluate the quality of nursing care on three types of patients, and compare the quality of nursing care with four objectives, before and after implementing clinical path. This was a quasi-experimental design. The research lasted from Aug. 1, 1999 till July. 31, 2001. Four medical center orthopedics units were used in the sampling. A pre-test and post-test (after 3 months) was conducted. A total of 296 patients were given the pre-test and the post-test. The reliability were counted on inter-rater reliability. Validity were based on experts' opinions and content validity. The result showed: (1) the quality of nursing care on pre and post-clinical path on four objectives. The mean scores for Objective I �(formulating a nursing care plan) were 92.88, 91.98; for Objective II �(attending patients'�physical needs) the scores were 90.04, and 90.15; for Objective III (attending patients' psycho-social-culture-spiritual need) the scores were 88.87 and 87.53; for Objective IV (the achievement of objectives) the scores were 84.30 and 85.23. (2) There were no significant difference in the quality of nursing care between pre and post clinical path implementation. (3) There were no significant difference among three types of patients with four objectives. These results helped nurses not only promote the quality of nursing care and decrease the length of stay, but also save money, and increase the satisfaction of both nurses and patients.
