The quality management of operating room nursing improves the overall level of nursing quality and thus plays a vital role in operation. Here investigations were conducted to detect whether PDCA cycle (Plan, Do, Check and Act) can improve the nursing quality management and the doctors' cooperation satisfaction level towards nurses of the operating room. PDCA cycle management method was implemented in the nursing quality management of the operating room. From June 2015 to June 2016, the influence of the PDCA cycle management method on nursing documents writing, theory knowledge level, skill operation level and surgeon satisfaction in the operating room was investigated by observation. Compared with the average level before implementation of PDCA cycle, the qualification rate of the surgery patient care records, patient transfer lists and tripartite checklists were significantly increased. The pass rate of the nursing theory and nursing skill operation examination of nurses was also increased compared with before. Furthermore, surgeon satisfaction was also increased compared with the average level before implementation of PDCA cycle and the differences had statistical significance (P<0.05). Therefore, PDCA cycle management method implemented in the nursing quality management of the operating room effectively improve the quality of the nursing care, doctor-nurse relationship and therefore should be considered for popularization.
