GUEVARA LOZANO, Maryory  and  LAVERDE CONTRERAS, Olga Lucía. Application of the theory of comfort in the bath in bed. Index Enferm [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1-2, pp.76-80. ISSN 1699-5988.

The Comfort concept is very well known as a key element in keeping and recovering health. This article is the result of our experience applying the comfort Theory at the bedside care, reflecting on its important role on the care delivered to hospitalized patients. This Theory was specifically applied to bathing as a nursing activity that provides care and comfort. Methodology: a project was developed, in order to promote comfort to bedridden patients that required assistance on bathing and the comfort theory was applied by a group of nurses in a hospital wing. The project was planned, performed and evaluated from August to October 2010. Planning was done through visits to the hospital wing, applying a logical approach and the results showed lack of knowledge related to the fundamentals of The Comfort theory and its practice.

Keywords : Nursing Theory; Comfort.
