A survey of Children as next of kin within an ambulance service district in Western Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Antalet barn som anhöriga till patienter som erhåller vård och transport till sjukhus är okänt. Barn under 18 år kan ibland vara närvarande på hämtplatsen när ambulanssjukvården hämtar barnets anhörig. Hur många barn som anhöriga som är närvarande är okänt inom ett västsvenskt ambulansområde. Triagesystemet RETTS används vid triagering och bedömning av anhöriga till barnen.

Syftet med studien är att kartlägga hur många barn som är närvarande då deras anhöriga ges vård, behandling och transport till en vårdinrättning vid prioritet 1 och 2 larm. En enkät skapades för att samla in data till studien.

Barn som anhöriga finns även inom ambulanssjukvård. I denna studie identifierades 155 barn vid 95 ambulansuppdrag. Barn som anhörig ses till både vuxna, vanligen en förälder, som till barn. Ett flertal barn som anhöriga är närvarande när en anhörig påvisar svåra, kanske livshotande symptom.

Sammanfattningsvis visade studien att stödet till barn och kunskapen om stöd fanns inte inom det ambulansområde där studien är genomförd.
