En studie om röntgensjuksköterskestudenters kunskap om hygienaspekter : En jämförande studie i Vietnam och Sverige (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Background: It is important to have good hygiene in healthcare. Studies have shown that bad hygiene among healthcare professionals can lead to spread of bacteria and microorganisms, which in turn can lead to healthcare-associated infections. To counteract this there are established routines, laws and regulations, as basic hygiene routines.

 

Purpose: To study the knowledge of hygiene aspects in patient-related work among radiographer students in Vietnam and Sweden.

 

Method: A quantitative study with descriptive statistics and statistical tests, data was collected through surveys and observations. The number of participants in the survey was 100 students, 50 in Vietnam and 50 in Sweden. The observations were conducted on 12 students at a hospital in Vietnam. Data was analyzed in SPSS and then described in text and tables.

 

Results: The students had relatively good knowledge of hygiene aspects, but the results showed that things could be improved in Sweden and Vietnam. There was insufficient knowledge about the use of plastic apron and the use of jewelry such as watches. The students were careful to fixed their hair, have clean work clothes and wear plastic gloves at risk of contact with body fluids.

 

Conclusion: The study shows that there are similarities and differences among the students in both countries. There are areas that can be improved in the countries because knowledge and basic hygiene routines underlie the spread of healthcare-associatedinfections

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Det är viktigt med god hygien inom hälso- och sjukvård. Studier har visat att dålig hygien bland sjukvårdspersonal kan leda till spridning av bakterier och mikroorganismer, vilket i sin tur kan leda till sjukvårdsrelaterade infektioner. För att motverka detta finns framtagna rutiner, lagar och regler som basala hygienrutiner. 

 

Syfte: Att undersöka kunskapen om hygienaspekter i patientnära arbete bland röntgensjuksköterskestudenter i Vietnam och Sverige.

 

Metod: En kvantitativ studie med deskriptiv statistik och statistiska tester där datainsamling skedde via enkäter och observationer. Antalet medverkande i enkätstudien var 100 studenter, 50 i Vietnam och 50 i Sverige. Observationerna genomfördes på 12 studenter vid ett sjukhus i Vietnam. Data analyserades i SPSS och beskrevs sedan i text och tabeller. 

 

Resultat: Studenterna hade relativt god kunskap gällande hygienaspekter men resultatet visade att saker kan förbättras i båda länderna. Bristande kunskap fanns gällande användandet av plastförkläde samt användandet av smycken som exempelvis klockor. Studenterna var noggranna med att ha håret uppsatt, ha rena arbetskläder och använda plasthandskar vid risk för kontakt med kroppsvätskor.

 

Slutsats: Studien visar att det finns likheter och skillnader bland studenternas kunskap i båda länderna. Det finns områden som kan förbättras i både Sverige och Vietnam då kunskap och basala hygienrutiner ligger till grund för minskad spridning av sjukvårdsrelaterade infektioner.
