Method. This study is quasi-experimental study with control group. To measure dependent variable (patient’s right practice by nurses), before and after intervention, perspectives of 180 patients admitted to emergency department were selected by convenience sampling. Intervention was implemented for emergency department nurses. All emergency department staff nurses working in a governmental hospital in the City Shahriar, Iran, were selected. The data were collected through a questionnaire composed of 2 parts, demographic information and 15 questions designed based on patients rights protocol in 5 domains with Likert scale. In order to ensure reliability, Cronbach’s Alpha was calculated for internal consistency coefficient through interviews with 20 patients (α=0.84). Validity of the questionnaire was evaluated by 10 experts. The questionnaire were completed before and one month after intervention through interviewing with patients admitted to the emergency department during the data collection time period. Data were analyzed by SPSS version 22.

Findings. Before intervention, the mean score of patient’s right practice was 58.83±16.81 and after intervention, the mean score of patient’s right practice increased to 84±8.12. There was a statistically significant difference between the mean total score of patient’s rights practice based on patients perspectives, before and after intervention (p˂0.0001). The lowest score for patient’s rights practice was reported for the domain information giving (15%) and the highest score was reported for the domain respect for privacy (82.7%).
