This study was semi-experimental in which all nurses working in two hospitals of Bandar Abbas in the first 6 months of 2018 were our statistical research community. Two hospitals were selected through random sampling and divided into intervention and control groups. Then, 30 nurses were selected from each hospital. For the nurses of the intervention group, 60 text messages about homovigilance were sent twice a day. Once before the training during the hospital inspection, the checklist on how to evaluate the blood care system (hemovigilance) of the hospital with the code 00.HV.003.CHL/01 was filled out and the second time after the training course and the scores of the homovigilance assessment checklists were compared. Data were analyzed using SPSS19 using Fisher's exact test, Chi-square, independent t-test, and paired t-test.
There were no differences between the two groups regarding the background variables of nurses. The scores of hemovigilance checklist before the intervention in the two hospitals were not significantly different; however, after the intervention the score of hemovigilance in the hospital of the intervention group was higher (p ≤ 0.001).
