Abstract [en]

This study aimed to describe the features of everyday life in psychiatric inpatient care as experienced by women who self-harm. Participant observations and informal interviews were conducted with six women and were subjected to qualitative content analysis. The major feature of everyday life in psychiatric inpatient care was ‘being surrounded by disorder’, which consisted of ‘living in a confusing environment, being subject to routines and rules that offer safety but lack consistency’ and ‘waiting both in loneliness and in togetherness’. The nursing staff spent minimal time with the patients and the women turned to each other for support, care and companionship.
