Abstract

The introduction of mobile communication devices (MCDs) has dramatically altered how nurses communicate. It is critical to assess whether these technologies contribute to stress and complicate the work of the nurse or if the devices are perceived as assisting in the provision of efficient and higher-quality patient care. The authors discuss a study that assessed the perceptions of nurses on a medical unit after MCDs were implemented.
