This study of patient activity level plans (PALP) to determine nursing levels form-patients units was carried out by means of an exploratory, descriptive instrumental study within the context of a nursing situation. With the literature study serving as background, a patient activity level plan (PALP) was designed, according to accepted criteria, to find data on which to base post determination for nursing staff. This study was done at a private research hospital in Johannesburg where all the patients and nursing staff (first- as well as second-in-charge) were involved. The PAUP-instrument was designed by the researcher, and under supervision of the researcher it was implemented in seven nursing units in the hospital. (The instrument proved to be highly reliable p = 0.999).
