Patient Care

The common goal of Kuopio University Hospital nursing professionals is to ensure the high-quality treatment of patients according to their needs. The nursing staff make use of evidence-based information when making treatment decisions.

Structured recording ensures that staff record ample information for the development of nursing activity in the care of patients. We assess the patient's treatment and need for guidance using clinical indicators that we have developed ourselves. Kuopio University Hospital is a forerunner in the systematic recording of patient care, basing its development on results from regular assessment.

The rapidly renewing operating environment of a university hospital demands high-level competence of its nursing staff combined with continuous professional growth and development. Work in clinically specialised nursing or in expert tasks is also made possible through systematic work rotation, continuous further training and studies.  

Kuopio University Hospital is a member of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI). Each nurse is kept closely in touch with the latest research through JBI databases, nursing recommendations and reviews.
