dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this ethnographic research study was to see if there is a correlation between touch by the nurse and positive acceptance responses by the patient. The study was conducted in a Southeastern Wisconsin Medical center and focused on 30 adult medical/surgical patients. An observational interaction between the patient and nurse preceded a structured interview which focused on how the patient perceived the touch of the nurse. Although the study clearly indicated that there is a distinct corollary between the touch of the nurse and perceived positive acceptance responses on the part of the patient, the research also demonstrated that verbal exchange between the nurse and patient also was significant to the perceived positive acceptance responses.en_US
