Abstract:
Currently 175,000 women undergo invasive surgery for breast cancer in United States every year, many require the placement of Jackson-Pratt drains, which are secured with large safety pins on the hospital gown. The hospital gowns are tied in the back increasing the discomfort for breast surgery patients. The patients also experience fear that the JP drainage tubes will be pulled out or will tug on the surgical wound site. The Papilla Gown addresses these issues and attempts to remedy them. The purpose of this study is to compare the patient’s physiological and psychological comfort level in three types of clothing: standard hospital gown, patient’s own clothing, and the modified standard gown, namely the Papilla Gown. The Papilla Gown was invented and designed by these investigators. Patients using the Papilla Gown will report higher scores of ambulation than those using their own clothing or the hospital gown. The study will use the quasi-experimental design in physician offices setting with mastectomy patients. The data will be completed on the second and on the seventh postoperative day using the Comfort Questionnaire and Patient Data Form developed by the investigators. The evaluation method will be used to measure the content validity based on Lynn’s criteria. In order to test the reliability of the instrument, the Cronbach’s alpha test will be used. Specially trained physician’s office nurses will explain the purpose of the research and the confidentiality of the study, as well as distribute the Papilla Gowns and questionnaires on their visiting day prior to their surgery. Thirty mastectomy patients from physician’s offices will be recruited using a nonprobability randomized sampling technique. Data will be analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Science. To determine if differences in age exists between the two groups, a two independent samples t-test will be conducted. A univariate ANOVA will be conducted to determine if significant differences exist in comfort based on group, age, marital status, pain management and type of surgery. In cases where significant factors consist of more than two levels, Tukey's t-test will be the post-hoc test to determine which levels of the factors differ in comfort.
