Abstract

Objective: The purpose of the study was to identify the impact of family empowerment model intervention on family satisfaction and children's length of stay in the hospital due to pneumonia. Method: The design of the study was that of a quasi-experiment. About 83 family-child groups were divided into 42 pair in the intervention group and 41 pair in the control group; which were recruited using consecutive sampling using certain inclusion criteria. Three district hospitals in Jakarta were used in this study. A questionnaire and family empowerment instrument were developed and used to collect the data. An analysis of the data used independent and paired t-test. Results: The results of the study showed a significant difference between the intervention and control groups in empowerment and satisfaction aspects after the intervention (p= 0.000; p= 0.000). An analysis of length of stay using the t-test indicates a significant difference between the intervention and control groups (p= 0.000). Conclusions: The family empowerment model (FEM) intervention has a positive impact on families, as it can increase both the satisfaction and the empowerment of the family. Another important indicator of the FEM's success is its ability to decrease the length of stay of patients.
