Abstract

This research will explore the experiences and meanings that nurses have about attending and caring for patients with protocols of care, their advantages and disadvantages. Any quality assurance initiative must start by developing customised standard operating procedures (SOPs). The creation of institutional SOPs requires staff participation, ongoing support, and mentoring. This study was conducted with the aim of improving processes in a healthcare institution by developing a Nursing care Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) in a tertiary care medical college hospital in northern India. These SOPs will serve as a tool to assess performance and implement corrective measures in the hospitals to guarantee the consistency of the care provided by each staff member in each ward area.

Keywords: Quality, Standards Operating procedures (SOP’s), healthcare, nursing
