The nurse's experience of work-related stress in emergency department : A literature-based study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: According to the World Health Organization, stress is a threat to global health, where there is an increase in healthcare personnel. Previous studies show that the nurses in the emergency room are extra vulnerable. Internationally, major challenges in modern emergency department are seen as a result of overcrowding and extended stay times.

Aim: The purpose was to examine the nurse's experiences of stress in work at the emergency department.

Method: A qualitative literature study was selected to describe nurses' experiences of stress following traumatic events in emergency department. Qualitative studies increase the understanding of the individual's experiences and needs, and how this affects the individual's health.

Results: The result shows that stress at the emergency department is a common problem. Complex care situations, high workload, lack of experience and conflicts in the working group were factors that lead to stress. Effects on physical and emotional health also emerged. Stress can affect the nurse and the quality of care.

Conclusion: The nurse at the emergency department is often exposed in a work environment where stress is common. Therefore, it is important for the nurse to receive support from work management and colleagues in order to be able to handle situations that may lead to impaired patient safety as well as the health of the nurse.
