<原著論文>阪神・淡路大震災後4年目を迎えた看護管理者の抱えている課題 <Articles>Important Issues for Nursing Directors to Consider 4 years after the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake
The nursing directors, who were both victims and helpers, and have lived through all the events of the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake until now, were surveyed. They were asked specifically what changes they would make to achieve the best emergency nursing care in a similar further catastrophe. Through conducting this survey, 10 important issues that the nursing directors were confronted with many difficulties were extracted. And we became aware of the actual conditions they had lived through, their difficulties and long-term hardships. Especially, two important factors arising out of the earthquake were considered. First, to realize that the caring staffs are themselves victims. Second, as nursing director, to learn how to behave ideally in such a situation.
