The vulnerable nurse - Caring for the burn victim (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund. En brännskadad patient genomlever ett stort lidande med en lång läkningsprocess och har ett omfattande behov av omvårdnad. Sjuksköterskans roll är därmed viktig för patientens rehabilitering och läkande. Syfte. Belysa upplevelsen kring omvårdnad av brännskadade patienter inom slutenvården ur ett sjuksköterskeperspektiv. Metod. Studien genomfördes som en systematisk litteraturstudie där resultatet utgjordes av 10 kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet. Fem teman som belyser sjuksköterskans upplevelser framkom i resultatet; att känna sårbarhet, att ge patienten stöd, kommunikationen en del av stödet, att få stöd i yrkesrollen och arbetsmiljöns påverkan. Konklusion. Sjuksköterskor upplever en emotionell och psykisk utsatthet i vården av brännskadade och behöver stöd från flera håll för att behålla sin självständighet, samt kunna se till patientens behov av vård. Implikation. Vi anser att resultatet kan appliceras på sjuksköterskor i Sverige då vi belyser sjuksköterskors upplevelser. Ytterligare forskning rekommenderas då forskningen kring sjuksköteskors upplevelser med brännskadade patienter är begränsad.

Five themes that highlights the nurse's experiences showed in the result; feeling vulnerability, providing patient support, communication part of the support, gaining support in the professional role and work environment impact. Conclusion. Nurses are experiencing an emotional and psychological vulnerability in the care of burn victims and need the support of several areas to retain their independence, and to ensure the patient's care. Implication. We believe that the results can be applied to nurses in Sweden since we highlight nurses' experiences. Further research is recommended when the research on nurses' experiences with burn patients is limited.
