Abstract [en]

PREOPERATIVE PREPARATION is an important aspect of creating a safe and pleasant hospital experience for surgical patients. Evaluating patient satisfaction, however, also depends on determining patients' perceptions of the care they receive.

THIS STUDY used a descriptive, qualitative method with a phenomenographic approach to determine how patients perceived undergoing a preoperative skin test that was developed to ascertain what substances might result in intraoperative reactions in patients with allergies, asthma, or eczema.

OVERALL, the patients had positive perceptions of the skin test; however, the results indicate a need for improved and individualized preoperative instruction that focuses on patients from a holistic perspective.
