Working at the trauma scene : Ambulance nurses experiences from working at the trauma scene (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka ambulanssjuksköterskors upplevelser av arbete på skadeplats med en till fyra drabbade personer. Metod: Fyra män och fyra kvinnor, med en erfarenhet mellan två och elva år av ambulanssjukvård, deltog i studien. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes och data analyserades med innehållsanalys. Resultat: Sju kategorier identifierades: Kommunikation, Ledarskap, Medicinskt omhändertagande, Rutiner och riktlinjer, Organisation, Personlighet och relationer, samt Samverkan. Skadeplatsarbetet sker utanför sjukhusets kontrollerade verksamhet. Att varje gång anpassa sig till situationen, omhänderta, leda och organisera arbetet är det som krävs av en ambulanssjuksköterska. Samtidigt ställs stora krav på den omkringliggande organisationen inklusive alla övriga resurser, på att kunna samarbeta och fungera som grupp. Slutsats: Skadeplatsarbetet kräver en organisation som måste fungera i minsta detalj och samtidigt alltid förbättra sig. Då många av de upplevda problemen ansågs bero på personlighet och relationer så kräver det dessutom att personalen är stresstålig, ödmjuk, social, kreativ och noggrann.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim with this study was to analyze the ambulance nurses experiences from working at the trauma scene, with up to four injured patients. Method: four men and four women, with a two to eleven years time of experience in the ambulance service, participated. Data from qualitative interviews were analyzed with content analysis. Result: Seven categories were identified: Communication, Leadership, Medical treatment, Routines and guidelines, Organization, Personalities and relations, and finally Cooperation. An ambulance nurse needs to be able to adapt to any given situation. To nurse and treat, to lead and organize the activity at the trauma scene, is some things that could be asked from the nurse. A great requirement is also put on the surrounding organization, including all other resources, to cooperate and to function as a team. Conclusion: Professional work at the trauma scene demands an organization that needs to function in any unique situation. At the same time it’s just as important that this organization continuously improves. Experiences from problems in prehospital work could be related to personalities and relations between colleagues. This shows the importance of personnel that can handle stress, show humbleness, empathy and skills of being creative, social and precise.
