Violence against nurses in emergency departments : Literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Våld är ett problem inom vården och på akutmottagningar finns en stor risk att våldsincidenter uppstår. Våld kan skapa fysiska och psykiska konsekvenser, medföra osäker arbetsmiljö och försämrad omvårdnad. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva sjuksköterskors uppfattningar om vilka faktorer som kan ge upphov till våld på akutmottagningar. Metod: Litteraturöversikt baserat på kvalitativa och kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: I resultatet framkom olika faktorer som kan ge upphov till våld, såsom väntetider och stressande arbetsklimat. Sjuksköterskors beteende, attityder och kroppsspråk är andra faktorer. Medicinska och psykiska sjukdomar kan göra att patienter blir våldsamma, liksom användande av droger eller andra substanser. Slutsats: Genom att uppmärksamma faktorer som kan ge upphov till våld kan preventiva åtgärder vidtas vilket kan göra att sjuksköterskor på akutmottagningar får en säker arbetsplats och kan utföra en säker vård till patienter.

Abstract [en]

Background: Violence is a problem within the care and there is a risk for violence incidents at emergency departments. Violence can bring physical and psychological consequences, cause an unsafe work environment and impair the care. Aim: The aim was to describe nurses’ perceptions about which factors that can generate violence in emergency departments. Method: A literature review based on qualitative and quantitative scientific articles. Result: The result revealed different factors which can generate violence, such as waiting times and a stressful work. Nurses´ behaviours, attitudes and body language are other factors. Medical and psychological diseases can make the patient violent, as well as drug use or other substance abuse. Conclusion: By paying attention to factors which can give rise to violence can preventive actions be taken which can lead to that nurses in emergency departments get a safe workplace and can perform a safe health care to patients.
