What am I waiting for? Older patients’ experiences of visiting the emergency department : A literature based study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den äldre populationen i Sverige ökar och med det även de åldersrelaterade sjukdomarna. För att kunna möta de växande behoven för denna grupp av patienter är det viktigt att undersöka hur de äldre patienterna upplever den omvårdnad de får i dagens sjukvård. Detta för att kunna upptäcka brister och förbättringsområden. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka äldre patienters upplevelser av att besöka akutmottagningen. En litteraturbaserad studie med grund i kvalitativ forskning syftande till evidensbaserad omvårdnad gjordes. Sju kvalitativa artiklar granskades och resulterade i tre nya teman och sex underteman. I resultatet framkom att de äldre patienterna på akutmottagningen ofta var missnöjda med den omvårdnad de erhållit. De kände sig inte sedda, visste inte vad som väntade dem och fick dessutom inte basala behov tillgodosedda. Dock fanns även nöjda patienter representerade i gjorda studier. Slutsatsen blev att dagens akutsjukvård inte möter upp till den ökande, åldrande befolkningens behov.
