Nurses Adherence to Hand Hygiene Guidelines : A literature Review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Handhygienrutiner är en grundläggande åtgärd i sjuksköterskans dagliga arbete för att förebygga vårdrelaterade infektioner. Över 1500 patienter dör varje år på grund av bristfällig standard på hygienrutiner. Vårdrelaterade infektioner orsakar stort vårdlidande hos patienten som kan förebyggas med god följsamhet till handhygienrutiner. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva orsaker som påverkar sjuksköterskors följsamhet till riktlinjer vid handhygien på sjukhus. Metod: Metoden som användes var en litteraturöversikt av artiklar med både kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framkom tre huvudkategorier; Risk för smittspridning, omgivningens villighet att ge återkoppling, samt brister i organisationen, med åtta underkategorier. Konklusion: Brister på följsamhet till handhygienrutiner ökar risken för vårdrelaterade infektioner. Det finns ett behov av större insikt inom sjuksköterskors följsamhet till handhygienrutiner för att minska vårdlidandet hos patienten.

Abstract [en]

Background: Following guidelines for hand hygiene is a basic part of the daily routine of nurses to help prevent healthcare associated infections. Over 1500 patients die every year as the result of poor adherence to hand hygiene guidelines. Health care associated infections result in care suffering for the patient which could have been prevented with higher adherence to hand hygiene guidelines. Aim: The aim of the literature review was to identify what causes nurses adherence to hand hygiene guidelines in a hospital setting. Method: The method used was a literature review where both qualitative and quantitative articles were analyzed. Results: Three main categories emerged from the analysis; risk for infectivity, peers willingness to give feedback and organizational shortcomings, with eight subcategories. Conclusion: Poor adherence to hand hygiene guidelines increases the risk of health care associated infections. To prevent care suffering for the patient there is a need for a deeper understanding for nurses’ adherence to hand hygiene guidelines.
