Factors affecting patients' experiences of privacy in healthcare : A literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Privacy is a human value which means the human being is inviolable and should be treated with respect for her identity. Privacy and dignity go hand in hand. When the nurse is listening sees the whole person and understands the patient, both dignity and integrity are preserved.

Aim: The aim of this literature review was to highlight factors that affect patients' experience of integrity.

Method:A literature review where nine qualitative scientific articles were reviewed according to the method described by Friberg.

Results: In the analysis three themes and five subthemes emerged. Confidentiality and Dignity emerged as the main themes and sub-themes were: The experience of treatment, The experience of participation, The experience of trust, The experience of exposure and The experience of private zone.

Conclusion: Patients did not feel that their privacy was preserved in a satisfactory manner. To preserve patients' privacy it’s important to understand how vulnerable they are and the nurse need to do everything possible to preserve patients' privacy. All nurses should think about and reflect on how they respond and treats the patients and how this affects their integrity.
