Objective: To explore the clinical effect of the Omaha system in the nursing of elderly chronic diseases in nursing centers. Methods: 150 elderly patients with chronic diseases admitted to nursing centers from February 2017 to April 2019 were randomly divided into experimental group (Omaha system) and controlled group (common management), with 75 patients each. Results: Compared with the controlled group, the disease awareness rate (96.00%) was higher in the experimental group (P <0.05); the satisfaction rate on management (93.33%) in the experimental group was higher (P <0.05); meanwhile, the number of awakenings and sleep time and sleep quality in the experimental group were all better than those of the controlled group (P <0.05). Conclusion: The application of the Omaha system in the nursing of elderly chronic diseases in nursing centers can improve the patient’s disease awareness and satisfaction on management, as well as improve the patient’s sleep quality.
