CUNHA, Simone Graziele Silva et al. Nurse’s performance in the contexto of hospitalar accreditation: na integrative review. Enfermería Actual de Costa Rica [online]. 2021, n.40, 41724. ISSN 1409-4568.


Understand the role of nurses in the context of Hospital Accreditation.


This was an integrative literature review, carried out between January and June 2019, on the basis of Latin American and Caribbean Literature in Health Sciences, Specific Nursing Databases, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature and Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online. Original articles were selected, in Portuguese, English and Spanish, that presented reports or experiences of the nurse's performance in contexts of Hospital Accreditation of the National Accreditation Organization. The articles were analyzed through content analysis.


As a result, 10 articles were found that responded to the objective of the study and emerged three thematic categories referring to the role of the nurse: Assistance, Administrative and Educational. In care, nurses perform activities to evaluate results and actions, use and develop indicators, apply protocols, control medications, products and equipment, articulation between the multidisciplinary team and incorporation of safety measures. In the administrative area, carrying out planning, setting goals, participating in commissions, developing quality policies and reorganizing work. As an educator, the nurse develops actions to strengthen the culture of safety and quality.


That was understood that the nurse had skills and abilities that assisted in the Hospital Accreditation process, which were important for the accreditation of the hospital institution.
