Background: How nurses treats the patients is always important, especially when caring for children. With this aspect in mind good communication and information are key aspects for trust and cooperation with families. Children have the right to participate and get information about their care and they are dependent on their parents, why it’s important that the environment and treatment from nurses accommodate the needs of the whole family.
Aim: To examine and illustrate how children and parents experience hospitalization and the treatment from nurses during the hospital stay.
Method: A literature review based on 11 qualitative articles was performed. The articles were found through four searches in PubMed and CINAHL.
Results: Both children and parents felt that participation in and information during the care was important while hospitalized. Although some children reported being ignored and excluded from the caregiving process most children were satisfied with the treatment from nurses. Parents also experienced the treatment from nurses as mainly positive. The hospital environment was perceived as both frightening and foreign to the children, but it could also be exciting. Boredom and loneliness was reported by some children. As for parents, they perceived that the hospital environment was poorly adapted to families and induced feelings of stress and anxiety related to both environment and role changes.
Conclusion: The conclusion of this study is that hospitalization and the nurses treatment needs further improvement and adjustment to fit the family’s needs.
