Patient’s experience of living with MRSA. : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: MRSA är ett stort globalt sjukvårdsproblem och en viktig hälsofråga. En förklaring till ökad spridning av MRSA beror på dålig handhygien samt bristande kunskap bland vårdpersonal. En åtgärd för att hindra smittspridning är att separera patienter med MRSA genom isolering i enkelrum. För att möta patientens behov av stöd och information är det angeläget att få kunskap om patientens upplevelse som bärare av MRSA.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva patienters upplevelse av att leva med MRSA.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt har genomförts med nio kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar och en kvantitativ/kvalitativ artikel. Artiklarna hittades i databaserna CINAHL Complete och PubMed, och har analyserats enligt Fribergs metod.

Resultat: Resultatet beskriver fem huvudteman: Känslan av skam och stigma, Kontakten med anhöriga, Isolering, Kontakten med vårdpersonal och Otillräcklig kunskap om MRSA.

Diskussion: Litteraturöversiktens huvudfynd diskuterades med stöd av Katie Erikssons teori om lidandet.

Abstract [en]

Background: MRSA is a big global health issue and an important health concern. An explanation to the increased spread of MRSA is due to poor hand hygiene and lack of knowledge amongst health professionals. A measure to prevent spread is to separate patients with MRSA by isolation in single rooms. To meet the patient’s need for support and information, it is important to gain knowledge about the patient’s experience as a carrier of MRSA.

Aim: The aim was to describe the patient’s experience of living with MRSA.

Method: A literature review has been conducted where nine qualitative scientific articles and one quantitative/qualitative article. The articles were found in the databases CINAHL Complete and PubMed, and were analyzed according to Fribergs method.

Results: The result describes five main themes: The feeling of shame and stigma, Contact with relatives, Isolation, Contact with health professionals and Insufficient knowledge of MRSA.

Discussion: The literature review’s main findings were discussed with the help of Katie Eriksson’s theory about suffering.
