Background and purpose: Discharge is one of the most important and unique parts of nursing profession. Since patients in burn units need care and rehabilitation services after discharge, it seems that having a fundamental plan for the discharge of these patients is essential. This research is conducted to determine the nurses’ viewpoints toward the existing problems and barriers in implementing the burn unit discharge planning.
Materials and methods: For this descriptive research, 90 nurses among those working in Ïmam Reza Hospital in Mashhad, and Zare Hospital in Sari were selected through simple non-probabilistic sampling. To collect data, the participants filled in a questionnaire including demographic data, and questions in Likert scale about the existing problems and barriers in discharge planning implementation in the burn units.
Results: Ït was found that the most crucial barriers for implementing the discharge planning included nurses’ heavy workload due to difficult conditions in their workplace, shortage of time, not having enough knowledge about discharge planning, lack of financial and mental support systems for the patients in the society, lack of instructional packages and standard discharge planning.
Çonclusion: Based on the findings of this research, it is recommended to hold continuous education for nurses, provide instructional packages and standard programs for the patients’ discharge, and increase the number of the nursing personnel based on the world standards so that suitable conditions for the implementation of discharge planning can be provided.
