    Basic trained nurses experience to start working on a children’s ward

    The aim of the study was to describe nurses trained to a basic level experience of starting work on a children's ward. A qualitative study has been conducted with a purposively drawn sample of informants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight basic trained nurses. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The results showed that respondents felt that the pediatrics course is not preparing for the professional work with children. Most felt that it was through real situations in the workplace that they gained necessary knowledge. Furthermore, it was found that only a few were satisfied with the induction. Spending time with many different supervisors was an important factor for experiencing dissatisfaction with the induction. Good support was received from employees; however the support of the organization was poor. Conclusion: Today's undergraduate education in nursing does not include enough pediatrics to prepare students for professional work with children and adolescents. Actions at individual and workplace levels are needed to increase knowledge of the basic trained nurse. Continuity and support during the induction is important for newly employed nurses to feel competent in their work.

    Associations between materials used and work-related musculoskeletal hand complaints among haemodialysis nurses2020In: Journal of Renal Care, ISSN 1755-6678, E-ISSN 1755-6686Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    One in every two haemodialysis nurses has reported musculoskeletal complaints concerning their hands, which is twice that reported for hospital nurses in general. It is possible that there is an association between the materials used by haemodialysis nurses and the occurrence of hand complaints.

    Objectives

    To examine the association between the type of dialysis machine and disposables used with the occurrence of hand complaints among haemodialysis nurses. To compare occupational risks of developing work‐related musculoskeletal disorders based on the materials used for haemodialysis.

    Design

    Cross‐sectional.

    Participants

    Two hundred and eighty‐two nurses working in 27 haemodialysis centres in Sweden participated in a survey, and 19 nurses at five centres were observed during priming procedures.

    Measurements

    Nurses supplied demographic data and answered the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire. Centre level data regarding machines and disposables used for haemodialysis during the past year were also collected.

    Results

    There were no differences in the prevalence of hand complaints based on the type of haemodialysis machines, dialysers or tubing used. There were no differences found in physical exposure to the hands during priming, based on machine type used.

    Conclusion

    The results of this study could not reveal any association between disposable materials used and the occurrence of hand complaints among haemodialysis nurses. Additionally, there were no occupational risks detected based on the types of machines used. Hence, the results of the present study strongly indicate that a deeper ergonomic analysis of the work environment is needed to understand the prevalence of hand complaints among nurses working in haemodialysis settings.

    Prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints among haemodialysis nurses – a comparison between Danish and Swedish samples2019In: International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics, ISSN 1080-3548, E-ISSN 2376-9130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. The repetitiveness of priming and dismantling disposables for haemodialysis treatments might be an important contributor to musculoskeletal complaints. The objective was therefore to compare the prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints among haemodialysis nurses in Denmark and Sweden.

    Materials and methods. For this cross-sectional study, nurses were recruited from haemodialysis centres in Denmark (n=194) and Sweden (n=351). Prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints was evaluated using the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire.

    Results and conclusion. The percentage of nurses reporting musculoskeletal complaints from at least one part of their body was 90.2% in the Danish and 88.9% in the Swedish sample. The anatomical locations with the most complaints were the neck, lower back and hands. Except for the proportion of complaints concerning the neck, there were no differences between the countries. Absenteeism from work was mostly due to complaints regarding the hands. The prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints seems to be higher among haemodialysis nurses than among nurses in general. Because complaints concerning the hands are common, and also related to absenteeism from work, it is of particular importance that manufacturers of dialysis equipment and nurse managers acknowledge these occupational health and safety hazards in their efforts to create a good work environment.
