Abstract

Aim: To verify the degree of dependency on nursing care on the part of hospitalized elderly inside a clinical practice unit by using the Perrocas’ System for Patient  Classification.  Methods:  a  cross  sectional  study,  undertaken  with  112  elderly patients  in  a  clinical  practice  unit  at  a  teaching  hospital  at  João  Pessoa/PB.  Results: It was observed that most elderly patients presented a high level of dependency on nursing care. A statistically significant association between high dependency levels and the socio-demographic  variable  of  previous  occupation  was  identified.  Conclusion:  the  empirical results obtained in this research are crucial to our understanding of the dependency of elderly  hospitalized  in  clinical  practice  units,  as  well  for  the  development  of  similar studies focusing on elucidating this dependency in order to help improve elderly patients’ quality of life.
