Abstract [en]

Background: In 2019, a new coronavirus broke out worldwide and caused a pandemic. It has been shown that this patient group requires more time for supervision and nursing than other patient groups who are cared for in intensive care units. Nurses who have cared for patients with coronavirus have shown psychological and physical strain.Purpose: to shed light on nurses' experiences of caring for patients with Covid-19 in intensive care unitsMethod: Qualitative inductive approach based on unprocessed material in the form of descriptive blogs from the internet. Data were analyzed according to a manifest content analysis.Results: The results revealed an overall theme: "Being nurses in the front line". Furthermore, three categories and seven subcategories emerged. The categories that emerged were: "The virus causes changes in work and private life", " To care for seriously ill patients where many die " and " To experience an unreasonable workload ".Conclusion: The degree project can be seen as a contribution to creating an understanding of the complex work environment that prevailed during today's first pandemic outbreak in the world and nurses' experiences of caring in this situation. Through its foundation in analysis of qualitative research, this can be made possible and contribute to creating tools for nurses in the future to handle similar situations and reduce the risk of ill health.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: År 2019 bröt ett nytt coronavirus ut världen över och orsakade en pandemi. Det har påvisats att denna patientgrupp kräver mer tid till övervakning och omvårdnad än andra patientgrupper som vårdas på intensivvårdsavdelningar. Sjuksköterskor som vårdat patienter med coronavirus har påvisat psykologiska- och fysiska påfrestningar. Syfte: att belysa sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att vårda patienter med Covid-19 på intensivvårdsavdelningar Metod: Kvalitativ induktiv ansats utifrån obearbetat material i form av beskrivande bloggar ifrån internet. Data analyserades utefter en manifest innehållsanalys. Resultat: I resultatet framkom ett övergripande tema: ”Att vara sjuksköterskor i frontlinjen”. Vidare framkom tre kategorier och sju subkategorier. Kategorierna som framkom var: ”Viruset orsakar förändringar i arbete och privatliv”, ”Att vårda svårt sjuka patienter där många dör” samt ”Att uppleva orimlig arbetsbelastning”.Slutsats: Examensarbetet kan ses som ett bidrag till att skapa en förståelse för den komplexa arbetsmiljö som var rådande under nutidens första pandemiutbrott i världen och sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att vårda i denna situation. Genom sin grund i analys av kvalitativ forskning kan detta möjliggöras och bidra till att i framtiden skapa verktyg för sjuksköterskor att hantera liknade situationer och reducera risken för ohälsa.
