Abstract: Stress and coping of mothers during the peri-operative period of their children’s congenital heart defect (CHD) surgery may affect discharge readiness. This study aims to determine the relationships between the stress, coping and discharge readiness of mothers following their children’s CHD surgery. The stress level and coping of mothers were collected at pre-surgery, discharge and two weeks post-discharge. The discharge readiness of mothers was collected on the day of discharge. There was a significant reduction in scores for the Pediatric Inventory for Parents (PIP) scale in stress level reported by mothers. However, the Coping Health Inventory for Parents (CHIP) scores remained stable across the three time-points. Mothers reported moderately on the Readiness for Hospital Discharge Scale (RHDS). The CHIP scores showed a mild positive correlation with the RHDS scores at discharge. These results suggest the possible relationship between coping and readiness of mothers during discharge following their children’s CHD surgery.
