Aims: Nurse-patient interaction in health-treatment systems, especially emergent wards, is very important. This study investigated the effectiveness of nurse-patient communication in reducing emotional states (stress, anxiety and depression) in emergency department patients. Methods: This quasi-experimental study performed in one of the Tehran city hospitals’ emergency ward during June to December 2008. The study population were of all patients who were admitted at the emergency department and hospitalized for at least, 3 hours. Two study and control groups (each 150 patients) were selected by available sampling method. Study group patients were cared by nurses trained about how to communicate with patients. Control group nurses were not under such training. To collect data, demographic and 21-questioned depression, anxiety and stress scale questionnaire were used. Data was analyzed by using SPSS 13 software and chi square, Man-Whitney and independent T tests. Results: 20.7% of control patients had severe depression, 24.6% had severed anxiety and 41.3% had severe stress. In study group, 22.1% of patients had severe depression, 20.3% had severed anxiety and 35.6% had severe stress. Differences were not significant between two groups in any fields (p>0.05). Conclusion: In general, stress, anxiety and depression level is high in emergency patients. Implementation of "to communicate effectively with patients" protocol by nurses does not significantly reduce depression, stress and anxiety of patients.
