Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva patienternas upplevelser av sin sömn när de är inlagda på en onkolog–endokrin vårdavdelning samt hur de hanterar denna situation.

Metod: Studien är explorativ med kvalitativ metod. Bekvämlighetsurval användes, och tio patienter (fem kvinnor och fem män) i olika åldrar som var inlagda på en onkolog - endokrin vårdavdelning deltog. Semistrukturerade intervjuer om upplevelser av sömn och hantering genomfördes. Intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat:De flesta patienterna i denna studie hade problem med sömnen när de var inlagda på avdelningen. De fick störd sömn av att vårdpersonalen gav vård till medpatienter, att de inte hade någon privat sfär och att de hade svårt med miljöbytet. Flera av informanterna hade egna metoder att hantera sina sömnproblem när de var inlagda på avdelningen.

Slutsats: Patienterna upplevde att miljöbyte och sjukvårdpersonalens arbetsrutiner på avdelningen påverkade deras sömn, och de försökte hantera sin sömnbrist på egen hand. Sjuksköterskor bör förstå att patienterna är ovana vid främmande miljö och inte alltid vet vad de kan göra när de är inlagda på sjukhus. Därför är det mycket viktigt att de planerar hur de ska ge vård till patienterna så att de inte stör patienternas nattsömn.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Nurses have experienced that patients with the diagnosis of carcinoid- and endocrine tumors sleep less than patients with other diagnoses that relocated to the same patient wards at hospital.

Aim: The aim was to describe patients' experiences of their sleep when they are admitted to an oncology-endocrine ward and how they handle this situation.

Method: This study was exploratory with qualitative method. Convenience sample was used, and ten patients (five women and five men) of different ages who were admitted to an oncologist - endocrine ward participated. Semi-structured interview about experiences of sleep and coping was used. The interviews were analyzed by using qualitative content analysis.

Result: Most of the patients in this study had problems with sleeping when they were admitted to the patient ward. They had been disturbed in their sleep when healthcare personal gave care to other patients in the same room. They felt that they had no privacy and also had difficulty with environmental change. Some patients had their own methods to manage their sleep problems.

Conclusion: The patients experienced that environmental change and healthcare personal’s work routines at the ward influenced their sleeping, and they tried to manage their situation in their own ways. Nurses should understand that the patients are not used to the new environment and not always know what they can do when they are admitted to the hospital. Therefore, it is very important to plan how nurses should give care to patients so that they will not disturb the patients’ night sleep.
