Contamination of microorganisms on the healthcare workers mobile phones (English)
Abstract [sv]

Användning av mobiltelefoner av hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal i hälso- och sjukvården har blivit allt vanligare. Forskning visar på att mobiltelefoner används av personal i patientnära situationer i syfte att underlätta arbetet. Därmed var syftet med kandidatuppsatsen att undersöka förekomsten av mikroorganismer som följd av bristande rengöringsrutiner av hälso- och sjukvårdspersonalens mobiltelefoner. Studien är skriven som en allmän litteraturstudie. Datainsamlingen har gjorts genom specificerade sökningar i databaserna CINAHL och PubMed. Sökningarna i de båda databaserna resulterade i 13 artiklar, som ligger till grund för resultatet. Resultatet påvisar att bakterier som koagulasnegativa stafylokocker och enterobacter var de vanligast förekommande mikroorganismerna på mobiltelefoner tillhörande hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal. Ytterligare påträffades mikroorganismer som virus. De virus som påträffades var respiratoriskt syncytuevirus (RSV) och adenovirus (AV). Resultatet visar även på brister gällande rengöring av mobiltelefonerna där majoriteten av mobiltelefonerna aldrig rengjordes.

Abstract [en]

The use of mobile phones by healthcare workers in healthcare settings has become increasingly common. Research shows that healthcare workers use their mobile phones within near contact with patients in order to facilitate their work. Therefor the aim of this candidate essay was to investigate the presence of microorganisms as a result of the lack of cleaning routines of the healthcare workers mobile phones. The study is written as a general literature study. Data collection was done through specific searches in the databases CINAHL and PubMed. Searches in the two databases finally resulted in 13 articles, which are the basis for the result in this study. The result shows that coagulasenegative staphylococcus and enterobacteria was the most occuring microorganisms on the healthcare workers mobile phones. In addition microorganisms as viruses like respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and adenovirus (AV) was detected on the healthcare workers mobile phones. The result also shows deficiencies regarding the cleaning of the mobile phones where the majority of the mobile phones were never cleaned.
