Abstract

This questionnaire study of a nurse support group on a pediatric intensive care unit confirms previous subjective reports of increased morale and better communication. The authors were also able to demonstrate reduced turnover rate of ICU nurses at the same that the turnover rate for the rest of the hospital increased, and found that the group had a positive influence on nurses' lives away from the hospital.
