Aims: To determine the medium-term impact of Hospital Nurses Case Managers on the quality of life of carers. Methods: An observational study cohort type (case-nurse managers vs. control), among patients with complex chronic disease admitted to the Jaén University Hospital. Quality of life was measured by the SF-36 at admission and after 90 days of discharge. Also performed the calculation of summary scores that allows the questionnaire: physical component summary (PCS) and mental (MCS), by combining the scores for each dimension, appearing as normal scores based on Spanish population. Results: The score of the SF-36 is higher in the control group in all dimensions throughout the study. The dimension of the physical role when the patient is admitted is the worst score has improved significantly after discharge. The PCS and MCS is below the Spanish average both during admission and 90 days after discharge. The case-nurse managing group PCS improves to discharge, while worsening in the control group. Unlike the case with MCS worsening in group case-nurse and improving in the control. Conclusions: The caregivers of patients with multiple comorbidities have a significant affectation in the admission physical role, dramatically improving after 90 days of discharge. The CSF and CSM are below the Spanish average.
