Review of literature about changes in maternity care revealed descriptions of new programs and consumer satisfaction but little was found about nurses' responses. The importance of nurse perception of work experience is magnified by the current nursing shortage. Using a modification of Peters' corporate model of forces at work and their resolution, a longitudinal study is being conducted to describe nurse responses in 4 hospitals changing to single-room maternity care (SRMC). Results of the first questionnaire completed after cross-training (CT) are presented here. Subjects (N = 69) completed a 12 item Changes in Maternity Care Questionnaire which has 10 subscales with Chronbach's alphas ranging from .64 to .93. CT, SRMC, inclusion of family and use of technology were the most frequent changes reported. Most changes were rated higher for worth and effect on quality of care than on ease of implementation. Subjects reported low levels of personal involvement, but felt more positive about their role than before onset of the changes. Comparing activities, an increase occurred for every activity, particularly documentation and assessment. Support of other nurses was identified as helpful in making every change. Patient satisfaction, improved patient care and support of administration were also helpful for some changes. Implications for staff development will be addressed.
