Ambulance staff´s experiences of traffic saftey in patient compartment of road ambulances (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ambulanssjukvård bedrivs både på hämtplats och under transporten till mottagande enhet. Detta medför att personalen utför vårdåtgärder i vårdutrymmet under transporten enligt tidigare forskning sker detta ofta utan att personalen använder sig av bilbältet.

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka ambulanspersonalens upplevelser av trafiksäkerheten i vägburna ambulanser.

Metoden har varit intervjuer med semistrukturerade frågor samt en öppen fråga. Intervjuerna har genomförts med ambulanspersonalen i deras arbetsmiljö, det vill säga ambulansens vårdutrymme. Intervjuerna har sammanställts och en innehållsanalys har gjorts på den öppna frågan.

Resultatet visar att personalen inte använder säkerhetsutrustningen i den utsträckning som de borde och vill göra. Arbetsmiljön och patientens tillstånd var helt avgörande. Personalen satte sin egen säkerhet åt sidan och fokuserade helt på patienten och dennes behov. Personalen upplevde dock att patienterna var trygga i vårdutrymmet.

Enligt flera forskare så har problemet med bilbältesanvändning i vårdutrymmet uppmärksammats under flera år. Men inga nya metoder eller idéer har anammats. Denna studies resultat förväntas öka förståelsen för den problematik som finns med att arbeta i ambulansens vårdutrymme på ett för personalen säkert sätt.

Abstract [en]

Prehospital care is carried out on the scene and during transport to a reciving unit. Thus, the ambulance staff is performing care assignment in the patient compartment during transport. According to prior research, the care is often made by the attending personal not using the seatbelts.

The aim of this study was to examine the ambulance staff´s experiences of traffic saftey in the patient compartment in a road ambulance.

The method used was semi structured interviews and one open question. The interviews have been carried out in the ambulance staff own working environment, the patient compartment. The interviews were put together and the open question was analysed by means of a qualitative content analysis.

The result shows that the ambulance staff did not use the saftey equipment in the patient compartment to the extent they should and whished to do. The working environment and the patient´s condition were the reason for not using seatbelts. The ambulance staff put their own saftey a side, and focused completley on the patient and his or her needs. However, the ambulance staff felt that the patient was safe in the patient compartment.

Several studies have previously shown that there is a problem with the lack of use of seatbelts in the patient compartment. However, no new ideas or method for consistent use of seatbelts has been adopted. The result of this study should increase awareness for the complex problems concerning work saftey for ambulance staff in the patient compartment.
