Work satisfaction in elder care : A nurse assistant perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Samtidigt som antalet äldre med stora omsorgsbehov ökar, har äldreomsorgen rekryteringsproblem och hög personalomsättning, vilket är en utmaning för samhället. Att uppleva tillfredsställelse i arbetet har visat sig kunna minska personalomsättningen. Uppsatsens syfte är att undersöka hur undersköterskor upplever sitt arbete i äldreomsorgen samt vad som ger tillfredsställelse respektive skapar otillfredsställelse i arbetet. Uppsatsen bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med undersköterskor (n=6). Resultaten analyserades hermeneutiskt och utifrån Herzbergs tvåfaktorsteori samt Antonovskys teori om KASAM. Undersköterskorna i vår studie upplevde sig generellt tillfredsställda med sitt arbete. Resultatet visar att en viktig faktor som gav förutsättningar till arbetstillfredsställelse var goda mellanmänskliga relationer. Otillfredsställelse i arbetet skapades framförallt av bristande tid att utföra arbetsuppgifter på ett tillfredställande sätt. Vi argumenterar för att vårt resultat kan ge en vägledning till vad som ger tillfredställelse respektive skapar otillfredsställelse för undersköterskor i äldreomsorgen och därigenom bidra med kunskap till äldreomsorgen.

Abstract [en]

The number of older people with major care-needs increase, at the same time as elder care has problems with recruitment and high staff turnover. This is a challenge for society. Satisfaction at work has been shown to reduce staff turnover. The purpose of this study is to examine how nurse assistants perceive their work in elder care, and what creates satisfaction and dissatisfaction at work. The results, based on interviews with nurse assistants (n=6) analyzed hermeneutically using Herzberg’s two-factor theory and Antonovsky’s sense of coherence theory showed that most nurse assistants felt generally satisfied with their work. The result shows that an important factor giving the conditions for work satisfaction was good human interpersonal relationships. Dissatisfaction at work was mainly due to the lack of time to fulfill work tasks to a satisfactory level. We argue that our results can provide guidance to reasons for satisfaction and dissatisfaction for nurse assistants in elderly care and contribute to important knowledge to elder care.
