Objective: To investigate the effect of humanistic nursing on the mental health of the patients. Methods: a total of 249 patients were investigated by SCL-90 and SCSQ, of which 97 elderly patients were the experimental group, and the remaining 152 were the other patients without humanistic nursing care. Results SPSS17.0 was used for statistical analysis and comparison between groups. Results: before the implementation of humanistic nursing, there was no significant difference between the experimental group and the control group on SCL-90, P > 0.05. After the experiment, there were significant differences between the two groups in the depression items (t=2.79, P=0.047 < 0.05), but there was no significant difference in the other 8 items, and the result was P>0.05. The two group of the first SCSQ integral mean + SD respectively is: 1.91 + 0.73, 1.85 + 0.65, t=1.27; two P=0.211>0.05; group second SCSQ respectively: 1.44 + 0.52, 1.82 + 0.63, t=5.61; P=0.019 < 0.05, with significant difference. Conclusion: humanistic nursing has limited effect on improving the mental health of the patients, but it can significantly improve the enthusiasm of the patients. Humanistic care should be introduced into the theory and method of psychology, so as to improve the effect of humanistic nursing.
