Abstract [sv]

Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva de skador som uppkommer hos vårdpersonal i samband medpatientförflyttning och vad som kan göras för att förebygga dessa skador. De ingående studierna har granskatsoch kvalitén på dessa har värderats. Resultatet visade på ett globalt problem eftersom de vetenskapliga studiernagjorda i ämnet kommer från flera delar av världen. Det var övervägande kvinnliga studiedeltagare i de studiersom granskades. Patientförflyttningar, stress, arbetsbelastning samt personalens sinnesstämning och hälsa fannsvara orsaker till vårdrelaterade skador hos personal. Brist på utbildning i förflyttningsteknik, brist på hjälpmedeloch hur hjälpmedlen ska användas fanns också vara orsaker till skador. Den form av skada som oftast förekomvar ryggskador. Med hjälp av skadeförebyggande program där det på arbetsplatser introducerats bland annatmekaniska liftar och utbildning i förflyttningsteknik har det påvisats en minskning av muskuloskeletala skadorhos vårdpersonal. Hjälpmedel vid förflyttningar kunde förebygga både fysisk och psykisk stress samt känslanav säkerhet för både patient och personal.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the literature study was to describe the injuries that occur amongst nursing staffwhen handling and transferring patients, and what can be done to prevent such injuries. In-depthstudies on the subject have been reviewed and the quality of them has been valued. These studieshave been carried out in different parts of the world, and the result of the review indicates thatthis is a global problem. The participants of the reviewed studies were predominantly female.Transferring and handling patients, stress, heavy workloads and the attitude and basic health ofthe employees were found to be the main reasons for nursing related injuries. A lack ofeducation in patient transferring techniques, a lack of transferring aids and how to use them werealso proven to be reasons for injuries. The most common type of injury was back injuries. Adecrease in musculoteletal injuries have been proven in workplaces where injury-preventingprograms, including mechanical lifts and education in patient transferring techniques, have beenintroduced. Transferring aids were shown to prevent both physical and mental stress, and also thefeeling of security among both patients and nursing staff.
