Abstract [en]

Stress leads to an activation of the sympathetic nervous system which leads to increased attention and better responsiveness. Prolonged stress leads to negative consequences for people at risk of psychological and physical symptoms. In an intensive care unit patients who are critically ill or severely injured receive care. The healthcare environment is stressful and the work pace is high. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of work-related stress and if it affects the care and safety of patients in intensive care. The study was conducted using questionnaires that were answered by a total of 70 critical care nurses. The results were presented by descriptive statistics and correlation analysis. The open questions from the survey were analyzed with a qualitative content analysis. The study results showed that almost all intensive care nurses experience stress affecting them adversely. Nearly half described that they do not have time to provide quality care to patients. Furthermore, the results showed that the stress threaten patient safety. The most common reason for ICU nurse experiencing negative stress is lack of staff and high demand from patients with many inputs and discharges. The work-related stress affects the nursing and patient safety for patients in a negative way.
