Abstract

The aim of the studie was to investigate if the Pediatric Early Warning Score system, PEWS, is an useful instrument on a children's inpatient ward, regarding the detecting of deterioration in children's vital signs. For this, a quantitative descriptive design with qualitative elements was used. Method: Study specific questionnaires were distributed to 86 persons (helpnurses, nurses and doctors). Of these, 36 answered and sent back the surveys. Results: Of 36 responses 25 felt experienced a faster detection of deterioration of vital signs in the child. Many felt that they had faster response from the physician on call by providing an assessment figure of the child's condition.

Conclusion: Most of the persons experienced that the use of the assessment intrument PEWS detected a deterioration of the child´s vital signs earlier than before using the instrument. Staff experienced greater security in their work when they had a tool to help and they also experienced an earlier response from physicians.

SAMMANFATTNING

 

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om bedömningsinstrumentet Pediatric Early Warning Score, PEWS, är till användning och vägledning på barnavdelning med avseende att upptäcka försämring av barns vitalparametrar. För detta användes en beskrivande kvantitativ design med kvalitativa inslag.

Metod: Ett studiespecifikt enkätformulär gick ut till 86 personer (undersköterskor, sjuksköterskor och läkare på två pediatriska vårdavdelningar). Av dessa besvarades 36 enkäter. Resultat: Av 36 svarande ansåg 25 att man snabbare upptäckte försämring av vitalparametrarna hos barnet. Många ansåg att de fick snabbare gensvar från jourläkare genom att uppge en bedömningssiffra över barnets hälsotillstånd.

Slutsats: Med hjälp av bedömningsinstrumentet PEWS upplevde personalen att en upptäckt av försämring av barnets vitalparametrar gjordes tidigare, samt att gensvar från jourläkare erhölls snabbare. Personalen upplevde en ökad trygghet i sitt arbete då man hade ett arbetsredskap till hjälp.
