Abstract [en]

This study examines and describe the ambulance nurse's experience of nursing documentation in single responderand the transfer of the documentation to other care levels. A qualitative design was used with focus groupinterviews as data collection method to enhance knowledge of the everyday experience of nursing documentation.The ambulance service in Sweden is a profession in transition that evolved from being a transport organization toprovide advanced medical care and nursing. However, all patients do not need advanced medical treatment and theSingle responder is an alternative resource to the ambulance that is used when no life-threatening conditions exists.However, the nurse faces a number of challenges when documenting nursing care interventions related totechnological development and the mismatch between the care offered and people's demands and needs. Even thoughnursing care documentation is key to enhance and develop patient safety within a young field as ambulance service.There is a lack of a coherent documentation system and two themes emerged through content analyzeswhich conveyed how nursing care becomes invisible and how nursing care interventions are communicated througha hidden language. There are serious shortcomings in the transfer of nursing documentation to other care levels aswell as deficiencies in the nursing documentation. Which jeopardizes the quality of care and patient safety as well asa systematic development of nursing care in this field.
