Abstract [sv]

Historiskt sett har personer med smittsamma infektioner uteslutits från samhället.

Personerna har setts med avsky och rädsla från omgivningen med risk för att överföra

smittan. Multiresistenta bakterier (MRB) är ett ökande problem världen över och

orsakar stort lidande för patienter. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att undersöka

patienters upplevelse av att vara smittbärare av meticillinresistenta staphylococcus

aureus (MRSA). Litteraturstudiens resultat baseras på nio vetenskapliga artiklar, där

resultatet utföll i två kategorier. I kategorin känslan av att vara smittsam framkom

underkategorierna att vara smutsig, skuld och skam samt rädsla och oro. I kategorin

känslan av att vara annorlunda framkom underkategorierna känna sig kränkt, ilska

och frustration samt känna sig stigmatiserad. För att patienter med MRSA-smitta ska

få en god vård krävs det att vårdpersonalen har evidensbaserad kunskap. Därför skulle

det vara av stort intresse att forskning i framtiden fokuserar på patienters upplevelse

av att vara smittbärare. Ytterligare forskning behövs inom området på grund av ett

ökat globalt problem med MRB.

Abstract [en]

Historically, people with contagious infections has been excluded from society. The

characters have been seen with disgust and fear from the environment with the risk of

transmitting the infection. Multi-drug resistant bacteria (MRB) is a growing problem

worldwide and causes great suffering for patients. The purpose of this study was to

investigate patients' experience of being carriers of methicillin-resistant

staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Literature study results are based on nine scientific

articles, which precipitated the result of two categories. In the category of feeling of

being contagious emerged subcategories to be dirty, guilt and shame and fear and

anxiety. In the category of the feeling of being different subcategories emerged feel

hurt, anger and frustration, and feel stigmatized. For patients with MRSA infection

should get good care requires that health professionals have evidence-based

knowledge. Therefore, it would be of great interest to future research focusing on

patient experience of being contaminated. Further research is needed in this area

because of the increasing global problem of MRB.
