The growing complex of organizations and the new demand for people's health care lead to a planned and personalized care solution. Primary nursing (PN), is a new model of care focused on the people to be treated and, at the same time, restores responsibility, autonomy and role to the nursing staff. The study was based on an analysis of the wellbeing climate following the implementation of the PN in emergency surgical ward in the General Hospital in Piacenza. In the emergency surgery ward of the General Hospital Guglielmo Da Saliceto in Piacenzathe results of organization remodulation and model of care are being analyzed. In this job the observations are been focussed on wellbeing of nursing staff. The Mc Closkey Mueller Satisfaction Scale (MMSS) is used for the study before and after the change, The Team Climate Inventory (TCI), used after thepractices changes and the staff satisfaction survey after the implementation of PN. At the beginning, with the MMSS methods, the results show impatience with some contractual and remunerative aspects; instead, after the introduction of the PN, the results show a satisfaction for teamwork, the interaction between the team personnel and with patients. Similarly, it alsoincreases the perception of the degree of autonomy of contribution in decision making and in the authoritativeness of the role covered. The new assistance model also shows good results from TCI and Focus Group to achieve the goals of assistance and organization. The increased satisfactions of the nursing staff show a better quality care.
