Nurses' experience of working in an emergency care department (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Previous research demonstrates that negative stress in the current situation is common among nurses working in emergency care. The stress is demonstrated to be associated with poorer provided care for patients and impaired health of nurses. Aim: The purpose of the study was to highlight nurses' perception of stress and their work for a good nursing care on an emergency care department. Method: An empirical design with qualitative approach has been used. Five semi-structured interviews were conducted with nurses and forms the basis of the results of the study. The collected data were analysed using a content analysis. Result: From the analysis crystallized five themes: Organisational structure, Loss of control, Stress-reducing factors, Positive stress and Experience-based security. The result demonstrates that the nurses rarely experience negative stress despite a heavy workload in emergency care department. There is an ambition to accomplish the nursing care but a medical priority focus of the department contributes to the delegation of nursing care to another profession. Conclusion: Nurses in the emergency care department have a high workload but doesn’t despite that feel negative stress. Clinical relevance: The study is of clinical relevance because it’s enlights different aspects that emerged as significant for avoiding negative stress.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Tidigare forskning påvisar att negativ stress i dagens läge är vanligt förekommande hos sjuksköterskor som arbetar inom akutsjukvården. Stressen påvisas ha samband med sämre utförd omvårdnad av patienter och försämrad hälsa hos sjuksköterskorna.

Syfte: Studiens syfte var att belysa sjuksköterskors upplevelse av stress samt deras arbete för en god omvårdnad på en akutsjukvårdsavdelning.

Metod: En empirisk design med kvalitativansats har använts. Fem semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med sjuksköterskor och ligger till grund för studiens resultat. Insamlad data har analyserats med en induktiv innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Ur analysen utkristalliserades fem teman: Organisatorisk struktur, Förlust av kontroll, Stressreducerande faktorer, Positiv stress och Erfarenhetsbaseradtrygghet. Resultatet påvisar att sjuksköterskorna sällan upplevde negativ stress trots en hög arbetsbelastning på akutsjukvårdsavdelningen. Det fanns en strävan att hinna med omvårdnadsarbetet men ett medicinskt prioriterad fokus på avdelningen bidrog till delegeringav omvårdnadsåtgärderna till en annan profession.

Slutsats: Sjuksköterskor på akutsjukvårdsavdelningen har en hög arbetsbelastning men upplever trots det sällan negativ stress.

Klinisk relevans: Studien har klinisk relevans då ett flertal faktorer framkommit som betydelsefulla för undvikandet av negativ stress.
