Abstract [sv]

Inom akutsjukvården är en stor del patienterna 65 år och äldre, vilket innebär att en stor del av vården vid en akutmottagning omfattas av bemötande och omhändertagande av äldre patienter. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att belysa hur äldre personer beskriver att deras behov av omvårdnad blir tillgodosett av omvårdnadspersonal vid akutmottagning. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie där 13 artiklar granskades. Resultat: Resultatet visade att många äldre hade en negativ upplevelse av sin vistelse på akutmottagningen. Många fick vänta länge och fick inte sina basala behov tillgodosedda såsom t.ex. mat och dryck. Äldre patienter kände sig oroliga, övergivna och rädda under väntetiden och önskade mer uppmärksamhet och en mer kontinuerlig uppföljning under väntetiden. Resultatet visade också att information till patienten var väldigt viktig. Fick de äldre på akutmottagningen information om vad som skulle hända, hur undersökningar skulle gå till och varför de fick vänta kände de sig nöjda och trygga. Det fanns enligt resultatet en hög respekt för sjuksköterskornas professionella kompetens och omvårdnadspersonalens uppträdande på akutmottagning värderades högre av äldre patienter än av yngre patienter.

Abstract [en]

In the emergency department a big part of the patients are 65 years old and older, which means that a great deal of the medical care at the emergency department consists of meeting and caring for older patients. The aim: The aim with this study was to enlighten how the older patients describe that nurses at the emergency department provide for their need of care. Method: The study was done as a study of literature where 13 articles were reviewed. Result: The result showed that several older patients had a negative experience of their stay at the emergency department. Many of them had to wait for a long time and did not get their needs provided for. Older patients felt worried, abandon and scared during their time waiting and wished for more attention and more continual checkups during waiting time. The result also showed that information to the patients where very important. If the older patients at the emergency department got information about what was going to happen, how the examinations should proceed and why they had to wait they got more satisfied and secure as patients. There was, according to the result, a high respect for the nurse’s professional competence, and the older patients valued the staff’s behaviour higher than the younger patients.
