Nurses assessment and handling of malnutrition status of elderly patients treated in hospital : Questionnaire study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Mer än 25 % av äldre patienter lider av undernäring under sin sjukhusvistelse. Detta problem har varit känt i ett flertal år. Syftet med studien var att beskriva sjuksköterskors bedömning och hantering av undernutrition hos äldre patienter som vårdas på sjukhus. Metoden som valdes till studien var en kvalitativ enkätstudie och dess svar bearbetades genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultaten presenterades i sju olika teman: Den kliniska blicken, Samlad bedömning, Bedömningshjälpmedel, Registrering av kostintag, Psykisk hälsa, Undersköterskans roll och Tidsbrist. Konklusionen är att sjuksköterskor har tillräcklig kunskap och hjälpmedel för att kunna bedöma ett adekvat nutritionsstatus på sina patienter. Det som dock hindrar dem är den ständiga tidsbristen som gör att nutritionsfrågor prioriteras lägre. Undersköterskorna tar ofta på sig ansvaret för nutritionsbedömningen.

Abstract [en]

In spite of the fact the situation has been well known for several years, more than 25 percent of elderly patients suffer from malnutrition during hospital care. The aim of this study was to describe the nurse's assessment of nutrition status among elderly patients treated in hospital. The chosen method was a qualitative questionnaire and by using a qualitative content analysis, the answers were processed. The results were presented in seven themes; The clinical eye, Resources, Raised assessment, Registration of food intake, Mental health, Assistant nurse´s role and Lack of time. Our conclusion is that nurses have enough knowledge and aid to appraise an adequate nutrition status on their patients, but is prevented by constant lack of time resulting in nutrition questions being lower prioritized. Instead, the assistant nurse takes more responsibility for the nutrition assessment.
