Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur sjuksköterskor på en allmänpediatrisk avdelning disponerar sin tid gällande administrativa arbetsuppgifter jämfört mot direkt och indirekt patientkontakt. För att granska detta fenomen utfördes en aktivitetsstudie. Metod designen var icke experimentell deskriptiv observationsstudie. Där sju olika sjuksköterskor följdes under femton dagar där tidmätning skedde av på förhand kategoriserade aktiviteter. Kategoriseringsschema innehöll nio olika kategorier. Resultatet visade att 19,53 procent av arbetspasset vilket motsvarar 97 minuter spenderades med direkt patientkontakt respektive de 24,3 procent vilket motsvarar 120 minuter per dag till administrativa göromål. Dessutom uppmättes det att sjuksköterskorna blev avbrutna i snitt 26 gånger under ett åtta timmars arbetspass vilket resulterar till 3,25 avbrott per timme. Forskarnas slutsats är att det finns flera fördelar med ökad tid för patientkontakt och att detta är synnerhet gällande på en allmänpediatrisk avdelning.

 

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine how nurses at a general pediatric unit dispose of their time regarding administrative duties compared to direct interaction with the patient. To appropriately survey this phenomenon an activity study was conducted. The method for data collection was a nonexperimental descriptive observational study where seven nurses were followed for a total of fifteen days where the amount of time of their activities where noted according to an activity schedule that was formed beforehand. The schedule contained nine categories including the amount of interruptions nurses where subject to. The result of the study showed that roughly 19,53 percent of the nurses’ time, which is the equivalent to 97 minutes, were spent directly with the patients compared to the 24,3 percent, which amounts to 120 minutes a day, she spent with administrative tasks. Furthermore it was found that a nurse is in average interrupted 26 times during an eight hour shift which gives an average of 3,25 interruptions every hour. In conclusion the authors found ground that there are many benefits with increased nurse-patient time and believe this is especially true in a general pediatric unit.
