Actions that can improve radiology nurse's compliance with basic hygiene practice with a focus on hand hygiene :  An integrative literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Röntgenavdelningen har ett blandat flöde av patienter vilket medför att denna är en potentiell smittväg för olika sjukdomar. För att minska risken för smittspridning är det viktigt att de basala hygienrutinerna följs, dock visar studier på att följsamheten till de basala hygienrutinerna är låg. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt var att undersöka hur röntgensjuksköterskans följsamhet till handhygienrutiner kan förbättras. Metod: En integrativ litteraturöversikt där vetenskapliga artiklar har sökts i databaserna PubMed och CINAHL. 15 artiklar har kvalitetsgranskats, kategoriserats, analyserats och slutligen har resultatet sammanställts och en syntes skrivits. Resultat: Olika typer av interventioner, såsom utbildning, information, automatiserade observationssystem och multimodala interventioner kan vara hjälpsamma i arbetet med att förbättra följsamheten till handhygienrutinerna Slutsats: Praktisk och teoretisk utbildning, en engagerad ledning och ett klimat i kombination med god tillgång till handhygienprodukter och påminnelser om att utföra handhygien är viktiga delar i arbetet med att förbättra följsamheten till handhygienrutiner.

Abstract [en]

The radiology department has a mixed flow of patients which means that it has the potential to become a site for infection transmission. In order to reduce the risk of infection spreading it is important that the basic hand hygiene routines are followed. However, studies show that the compliance with the basic hand hygiene routines is low. Aim: The aim was to examine how the radiographer's adherence to hand hygiene practices can be improved. Method: An integrative literature review where scientific articles were searched in the PubMed and CINAHL databases. 15 articles have been quality reviewed, categorized, analyzed and finally the result has been compiled and a synthesis written. Result: Different types of interventions, such as education, information, automated observation systems and multimodal interventions, can be helpful in improving compliance with hand hygiene routines. Conclusion: Practical and theoretical education, dedicated management and a responsible climate combined with good access to hand hygiene products and reminders to perform hand hygiene are important parts of the work to improve compliance with hand hygiene routines.
