Challenges in the health care staff’s encounters with patients affected by MRSA (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ökande användning av antibiotika har resulterat i att bakterier blivit resistenta mot antibiotika. Staphylococcus aureus är en vanligt förekommande hudbakterie som orsakar de flesta sårinfektionerna och har utvecklat en resistens mot meticillin.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva utmaningar i vårdpersonalens möten med patienter som drabbats av MRSA.

Metod: En litteraturstudie där resultatet av 9 studier med kvalitativ ansats har sammanställts. Sökningarna gjordes i databaserna CiNAHL, MEDLINE, PubMed, PsykInfo och Scopus samt manuellt.

Resultat: Resultatet presenteras i fyra kategorier och nio underkategorier. Kategorierna är: behov av kunskap, hinder för följsamhet i vården, belastningar i den dagliga vården, att sträva efter en god vård för patienter med MRSA.

Konklusion: Kontinuerlig utbildning och följsamhet av riktlinjer som implementerats av ansvarig sjuksköterska möjliggör ett bättre smittskyddsarbete och en ökad patientsäkerhet. För att klara av utmaningar som kan finnas i vården av patienter som drabbats av MRSA och för att kunna utföra god omvårdnad, är det viktigt att vårdpersonal strävar efter att upprätthålla god hälsa hos sig själva.

Abstract [en]

Background: Increased use of antibiotics has made many of the bacteria resistant. Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacterium on the skin and causes the most of the wound infections, it has developed a resistance towards methicillin.

Aim: The aim was to describe challenges in health care staff’s encounters with patients affected by MRSA.

Method: A literature study where the results of nine studies with qualitative approach are compiled. The searches were performed in the databases CiNAHL, MEDLINE, PubMed, PsykInfo, Scopus and manually.

Result: The result is presented in four categories and nine subcategories. The categories are: The need for knowledge, Barriers for compliance in care, Strain in the daily caregiving, To strive for a good care for patients with MRSA.

Conclusion: Continuous education and compliance with guidelines that is implemented by the responsible nurse enables improved infection control and increases patient safety. To manage challenges that appear while caring for patients affected by MRSA and to be able to accomplish good caregiving, it is important that health care staff strives to maintain good health for themselves.
