Objective To analyze the complexity of nursing care with use of the Perroca scale in a Palliative Care Unit. Method Retrospective descriptive study of quantitative analysis. Results Between 2008 and 2016, the total of 2,486 patients were hospitalized, and their median length of hospital stay was 12 days. Of these patients, 1,568 had at least one Perroca scale evaluation. Nine hundred and ten patients (58%) were classified as minimal or intermediate care. Of these, 602 (66%) were discharged. As semi-intensive and intensive care were classified 658 (42%) patients, of whom 64% died and only 36% were discharged. Conclusion The Perroca scale is a tool to identify patients with greater need for care and the possible prognosis for hospitalized patients.
