Abstract [en]

Background

Today is length of staying at the hospital only some days even after large surgery. In the literature it is well-known how many days the patients stayed at hospital, how much pain they had after surgery and how many days they felt sick. But we didn't know the patients experienced the first hours at the nursing ward after surgery and who get through the first time at home after early getting home.

 

Aim

The aim was to describe patients experience of ”early getting home” after intestine surgery.

 

Patients and method

Seven women and three men who had been operated with large intestine surgery was included in the study. They was stay between two and four days after surgery at the hospital. After the patient getting home a nurse had a telephone call after a couple of days. They have a visit at outpatient clinic visit by three to five weeks later at the surgeon. At the same time interviews were making about 30 minute, the interview was typewriter exactly. The analyse method was on data was phenomenology.

 

Result

The patients felt trust to the caregivers, but the strongest supports were experienced from the relatives who had involved and engaged in their situation. The study showed that all patients trusted in caring, staff and doctors but they also said that they didn’t ha any other choice. The patients experienced the treatment from the nursing staff often as good. Throw the caregivers attention the patients felt that they had been seen and felt confirmed. The patients experienced fear and worry which come from loosing their control over the situation. The patients described health was the same as quality of life, to be with family or to have friends and be active in life.

 

Conclusion

All patients who had relatives support at home experienced their early getting home as positive. The following telephone call home from nurses were imported and was a part of satisfaction, but the largest support they had were the relatives who had involved in their situation.
