21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality of a database on nursing workload in relation to patient outcomes. Methods: A descriptive design was utilized. The evaluation of the quality involved three parts. The first part, in the technology aspect, was to ensure the accuracy of the database; the black box test was used to evaluate the design of the database construction, the safety mechanism and the control of the software. The second, a purposive sampling was used to test the quality of the content. Thirty college students were recruited from a Department of Nursing. Measurement indicators were applied to evaluate the data accuracy between a paper version and the electronic version. The accuracy rate of transfer from the database data into excels files and the perspective of users on database quality was evaluated. Thirdly, thirty records from studied nursing units in the database were evaluated, and 10 users who participated in the original study were contacted. Results: The accuracy rate of the black box testing was 98.12%, the testing efficiency was 1.88%, and fault record effectiveness was 100%. In the content aspect, the data accuracy rate was 99.95%. The accuracy rate of transferring the database data into an excel file was 99.66%. Participants suggested that the platform layout should be modified for easy reading and a communication channel should be established through the web. Conclusion: The quality of this database is adequate and can be used in Taiwan for future research to evaluate the nursing manpower in relation to patient outcomes.
