Introduction: Missed nursing care is a global concern. Nursing managers, using leadership skills, have a prominent role in preventing missed nursing care. Ethical leadership approach can improve the quality of care. The purpose of this study was to describe the impact of ethical leadership perceived by nurses on missed nursing care.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 230 nurses working in internal medicine and surgery units were selected through stratified random sampling from two hospitals affiliated to Yazd University of Medical Sciences/Iran. Questionnaires of “ethical leadership in nursing” and “missed nursing care” were the data collection tools. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis with SPSS16.
Findings: The mean score of missed nursing care and perceived ethical leadership was 47.54±2.83 and 109.08 ± 10.75, respectively. The results showed that there was a significant inverse relationship between perceived ethical leadership and missed nursing care (P <0.05).
Conclusion: Implementing ethical leadership is one of the practical strategies to decrease missed nursing care and consequently increase the care quality and increase patient satisfaction. The participation and performance of nursing managers in this process is critical to a successful outcome.
