    ABSTRACT

    Patients with hip fractures are a care-intensive and vulnerable patient population in health care. Guidelines for dealing with suspected hip fractures have been designed for a faster disposal, so-called fast track. These are used to optimize and shorten the processing time, improve treatment and reduce the risk of complications. Västernorrland county has applied a fast track, which means that parts of the processing previously performed in the emergency department, now is performed by ambulance nurses already in the prehospital care. These medical and nursing activities performed in varying and sometimes difficult healthcare environments. Therefore there was a need to study the ambulance nurses' experiences of caring for patients with suspected hip fracture. AIM: The aim of the study was to describe Ambulance nurses experiences of treatment of patients with suspected hip fracture.

    Qualitative approach was used and the design was semi-structured interviews were analyzed using qualitative manifest content analysis. The study population consisted of eight ambulance nurses stationed in Ångermanland, Sweden.

    The result showed that ambulance nurses possess both positive and negative experiences of working with suspected hip fracture. Older people represented the largest group of patients and these patients often suffered from dementia and other diseases and conditions that impeded communication and interaction, which created difficulties in dealing with these patients. The healthcare environment complicated the work further for the ambulance nurses and often includes difficult movements and lifting. Positive for both the patient and ambulance nurses was that it structured the care provided faster care chain and equivalent care for patients as well as more time for care. Other aspects that emerged were that the ambulance nurses have some preconceptions regarding the patient group and the difficulties in getting the patient adequate pain relief. The fast track was described to be too structured, the processing takes a long time and that it was difficult to get the patient enough pain relief without side effects.

    The conclusion was that it emerged that the ambulance nurses had both positive and negative experiences of the structured care, and had some preconceptions. All the respondents felt that they had more time for care, and that they got to know the patient better, because they could more easily evaluate the treatment outcome. The positive experience was that the fast track provided faster processing with better structure and thereby an equal treatment throughout the county regarding this population. It was accepted that missions took longer therefore the staff spent more time with the patients. The ambulance nurses could see concrete result of the fast track. The negative experiences included that the patient group was difficult to assess because of past illnesses and drug treatments. Relatives and caregivers are sometimes forced into the nursing room, with the aim to be helpful, but instead moved focus from the patient.
