The purpose of this study is to explore the factors, which influence the duration of getting out of bed after undergoing a surgery. An instrument modified by the researcher entitled as'Guideline of interviewing: the patients who got out of the bed at the first time after a general surgery' is based on the literature review. The instrument has been revised by a panel of expert for its content validity, and also experienced a pre-test among the patients for its reliability. Totally 58 subjects were recruited from a surgical ward of a medical center nursing convenient sampling. Observation,interviewing, and reviewing medical records were used by two research assistants who are the students of the Department of Health Management. SPSS10.0 was facilitated for analysing of data. The finding reveals that the period of the first time to get of one's bed after a surgery is 79.2 hours. Based on the demography data, the patients who are younger, well-educated, and female are more likely to experience shorter period of time to get out of the beds. However, after a surgery the patients whose bodies are inserted some tubes than those who have no tube inserted would be more likely to increase the period of time to get out of the beds. Approximately, there are 50% of the participant with his/her first time to get out of bed after a surgery being encouraged by the health professionals, and the barriers include fear of pain and wound split, 55.2%, 32.8%, respectively.The discomforts experienced by the patients who are at the moment of the first time of getting out of the beds are pain, faintness, and lower legs weakness, 67.2%, 58.6%, 34.5%, respectively.
