Advantages and disadvantages of working in an efficiency OR unit : Operating room nurses experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sjukvårdens kostnader ökar, liksom antal vårdtillfällen och vårdtyngd och krav finns därför på att effektivisera vården. Samtidigt som vården skall effektiviseras så skall också kvaliteten på vården tillgodoses.

Syfte: Att undersöka och beskriva operationssjuksköterskors upplevelser av arbete på effektivitetssal.

Metod: Studien utfördes med en beskrivande kvalitativ ansats och ett ändamålsenligt strategiskt urval har använts. Tio operationssjuksköterskor med erfarenhet av att arbeta på effektivitetssal fick svara på sex i förväg utformade frågor genom enskilda intervjuer som spelades in på ljudband. Datan transkriberades sedan och analyserades genom innehållsanalys, där två huvudkategorier och flera underkategorier framkom.

Resultat: Det finns både fördelar och nackdelar med arbetet på effektivitetssal samt också erfarenheter som inte kan tolkas som enbart positiva eller negativa. Fördelar var bland annat att arbetet var stimulerande, det var bättre teamarbete och bättre kommunikation. Nackdelar var bland annat att det av vissa ansågs stressigt och att personalen kunde uppleva sämre kontroll.

Slutsats: På effektivitetssalarna tycks det råda ett högre tempo, som av operationssjuksköterskorna kan upplevas som både stimulerande och stressigt och med arbetet finns både för- och nackdelar.

Klinisk betydelse: Genom resultatet framkommer vad som redan fungerar bra i arbetet på effektivitetssal och även var möjligheter till förbättringar finns, förbättringar som kan göra arbetet än mer effektivt.

Abstract [en]

Background: Costs of healthcare are increasing and so is the amount of admissions to the hospitals as well as the burden of care in the wards, and therefore demands for more efficiency in the healthcare system is required. While healthcare needs to become more efficient there is also a demand that the quality on healthcare is met.

Aim: To investigate and describe operating room nurses experiences of working in an efficiency OR unit.

Method: The study was conducted using a descriptive qualitative approach and a purposeful sampling strategy was used. Ten operating room nurses, with experience of working in an efficiency OR unit, answered six beforehand designed questions through individual interviews that were recorded on audiotape. The data was transcribed and then analyzed by content analysis, where two main categories and several sub-categories emerged.

Result: There are advantages and disadvantages of working in an efficiency OR unit and there is also some experience that can’t be interpreted as solely positive or negative. Advantages were that the work was found stimulating, there was better teamwork and better communication. Disadvantages were, among other things, that work could be found stressful by some of the staff and staff could also experience loss of control.

Conclusion: It seems to be a faster pace in efficiency OR units, which can be perceived as both stimulating and stressful among operating room nurses and there are also both advantages and disadvantages with the work.

Clinical relevancy: The result shows what already works well in the efficiency OR units and also where opportunities for improvement exist, improvements that could make work more efficient.
