Security is a complex concept in health care : A concept analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

Healthcare professionals work by laws and policies aimed to improve the safety for the patients. This involve working with safety based on a quality aspect there several participants collaborate to develop various assessment instruments to increase patient safety. Safety is a concept with multiple dimensions and there are both internal and external aspects in the concept

. The internal safety is characterized by the feeling to feel safe which is a combination of balance, peace and harmony. The external safety is characterized by the relationship with the outside world, material things and relationships.

The purpose of this paper was to describe and deepen the understanding of concept safety in nursing.

The analysis was conducted using Peep Koorts model for concept analysis. This concept analysis has been worked out in four steps: etymological-, semantic-, discriminations analysis and an interpretation phase. In this analysis there was used twelve Swedish dictionaries, published between year 1981-2014.

The result showed that it´s unclear what was meant by safety in care

. The concept safety has many meanings and what is put in the concept is individual by experience, age and education.

As healthcare professionals, it´s important to be aware that safety can be of a different interpretation, significance and meaning for the patient. In order for the nurse to be able to meet the patient's expectations and needs while following laws and ethical agreements the nurse must be perceptive to the patient's perspective and the subjectivity of the concept safety.
