    Abstract [en]

    Background: Risk of blood splash to the eyes is present. Studies show low compliance to the use of eye shields among perioperative personnel.

    Motive: Research regarding knowledge and compliance to guidelines about eye shields are limited. This study can contribute to increased knowledge and compliance to the use of eye shields as well as reduced risk of infectivity. 

    Aim: Investigate and compare compliance of using eye shields among perioperative personnel.

    Methods: The study was conducted using quantitative methodology and content analysis as a cross-sectional study. The surveys were distributed February 2018. The participants consisted of 11 surgeons, 17 theater nurses, 12 medical students and 1 theater nurse student. In analysis, statisticprogram SPSS 24.0 was used. Chi-square test was performed to find differences between professionals and students. A content analysis of comments revealed two categories (compliance to the use of eye shields and splash) and seven subcategories.

    Result: Professionals used ordinary glasses to a greater extent than students. No significant difference was observed in the use of eye shields between professionals and students. Students declare a will to have more education about eye shields to a greater degree than professionals, the difference was significant (p=0.003).

    Discussion: Several participants in the present study stated that they did not get splashed in the eyes and believe that ordinary glasses give enough protection to splashes. The authors of the present study believe that splash may occur without the knowledge of staff and that eye shields should always be used.

    Conclusion: Increased knowledge of what splash of blood and body fluids can lead to can contribute to increased use of eye shields. This study can form the basis for future research and be used in quality- and safety management in terms of compliance to the use of eye shields among perioperative personnel.
