dc.description.abstract. Pare~tal perceptions of stress associated wfth having a thild hospitalized in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit {PICU) were studied. The Parental Stressor Scale: Pediatric Intensive Care Unit .{Miles & Carter, 1983) and a Demographic Data Sheet were used to assess nineteen parents• stress who had a child hospitalized in a PICU of a southwestern hospital {n = 19). Results of. the study indicated that parental perceptions of stress did not significaritly differ at three different times during their child's hospitalization in a PICU. The parental stress was assessed at the beginning, at the midpoint, and ·at the end of their child's hospitalization in the PICU. The parental stress was also analyzed for correlation with the child's age, admi~sion status, and parent's educational level. The parental stress was significantly greater if the. child's admission to-the PICU was unplanned., The study provides I some interesting data to be considered by profess-ionals caring for parents with a child hospitalized in a PICU.en_US
