- Background: Recent changes in the medical environment have increased the need for the home health care nursing in Korea. Even though the number of home health care patients is increasing, the major nursing problems have not been identified due to lack of a standardized nursing diagnosis. Aim: An investigative study was conducted to determine the frequency and appropriateness of nursing problems in hospital-based home health care patients in Korea using two internationally standardized nursing diagnosis classification systems. Methods: Nursing records of 249 hospital-based home health care patients were reviewed and nursing problems were identified using the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association Nursing Diagnosis Taxonomy I (NANDA) and the Clinical Care Classification of Nursing Diagnoses (CCC). Findings: Out of 463 nursing problems. 403 nursing problems were described using the NANDA whereas 427 nursing problems were described using the CCC. Nursing diagnoses not captured by the NANDA classification include nausea/vomiting, anorexia, risk for nutrition deficit, decreased blood pressure, dying process, blood sugar impairment. infection unspecified, and disuse syndrome. Nursing diagnoses not captured by the CCC include nausea/vomiting and anorexia. Conclusions: In describing nursing problems of home health care patients, it was found that the CCC was able to represent more diagnoses than the NANDA.
