Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe, analyses and compare nursing documentation in primary health care in three county councils. The study was performed in Sweden during 2002-2004. 346 district nurses answered a questionnaire and 52 nursing records were audited by the audit instrument Cat-ch-Ing. The result of the survey from all three county council indicates that nurses felt that the structured form, with keywords, for the nursing record facilitated the documentation, clinical decisions and evaluation of care. The audit showed that nursing intervention and nursing status was frequently documented bur the key words nursing diagnosis and nursing goal occurred rarely. Medical facts dominated the nursing documentation and notes of the diseases effect on the individual-s daily life existed rarely. The nursing record was more a checklist for done interventions than an informative source of nursing facts.
