Abstract [sv]

För att avlasta akutmottagningarna i Uppsala samt öka tillgängligheten till vård och därigenom öka patientsäkerhet och vårdkvalitet öppnades år 2008 Uppsala Närakut.   

Syfte Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilka orsaker som patienterna söker vård för på barnakutmottagningen och vilka av dessa patienter som skulle ha kunnat söka vård vid Uppsala Närakut.

Metod Studien var en deskriptiv observationsstudie där data har bearbetats med både kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats. Studien genomfördes under två veckor under hösten 2010 på barnakutmottagningen på Akademiska sjukhuset i Uppsala. Under observationstiden studerades sökmönster på barnakutmottagningen samt personalens bedömningar och eventuell hänvisning av patienter till Uppsala Närakut. Under studietiden gjordes 248 observationer vilka dokumenterades på ett särskilt protokoll.

Resultat Sökorsaker som var vanliga på barnakutmottagningen var exempelvis extremitetsskada, feber och andningsbesvär. Personalen på barnakutmottagningen uppfattade att 10% av patienterna hade kunnat tas om hand på Uppsala Närakut men ingen av patienterna hänvisades dit av mottagande personal. Några anledningar till att inte hänvisa patienter till Uppsala Närakut var ”av bekvämlighet” samt ”diffusa symtom”.

Slutsats Trots att inga patienter hänvisades till Uppsala Närakut ansåg personalen att patienter med lindriga åkommor och som var lätta att diagnostisera hade kunnat söka vård vid Uppsala Närakut.

Abstract [en]

An emergency care clinic was opened in 2008 in order to reduce the patient visits at the emergency departments in Uppsala and to increase access to care.

Aim The aim of this study was to investigate for what reasons patients attend the pediatric emergency department and who of these patients that could have attended the emergency care clinic instead.

Methods This study was a descriptive observational design where data has been analysed with both qualitative and quantitative approach. The study was conducted at the pediatric emergency department at Uppsala University Hospital during two weeks in fall 2010. During this time, the assessment of patients conducted by the receiving staff and reasons for attendance was studied. A total of 248 observations were conducted and data were documented in a specific protocol.

Results Common reasons for attendance at the pediatric emergency department were extremity injury, fever and respiratory problems. According to the staff 10% of the patients could have been treated at the emergency care clinic but none of the patients were referred there. Reasons for not referring patients were for example “convenience” and “non- characteristic symptoms”.

Conclusion: Even though no patients were referred to the emergency care clinic, patients with minor problems and problems that were easy to diagnose could have been treated at the emergency care clinic according to the staff at the pediatric emergency department.
