I can't take off my skin color : Nurses experiences of racial discriminination by patients (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sjuksköterskor utsätts för rasdiskriminering från patienter vilket leder till ohälsa. I Sverige finns lagstiftning som förbjuder all form av diskriminering samt att ohälsa på arbetsplatsen skall förebyggas. Syftet med studien var att belysa sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av patienters rasdiskriminering. För att uppnå studiens syfte genomfördes en litteraturstudie vilken utföll i åtta vetenskapliga resultatartiklar. Kodningar och analyser gjordes av resultatartiklarna vilket mynnade ut i två teman, Rasdiskrimineringens uttryck och Rasdiskrimineringens konsekvenser. Rubriken Rasdiskrimineringens konsekvenser gav två underrubriker, känslor och copingstrategier. I resultatet framkom det att sjuksköterskor utsattes för rasdiskriminering via kommentarer och ansiktsuttryck från patienter vilket leder till fysiska och psykiska samt stressrelaterade skador. Att utsättas för rasdiskriminering leder till upplevelsen av negativa känslor. För att handskas med rasdiskriminering har sjuksköterskor anammat olika copingstrategier som i vissa fall inte varit behjälpliga och det slutgiltiga alternativet har varit att lämna arbetsplatsen. 

Abstract [en]

Nurses are exposed to racial discrimination very often which can result in ill health. There is a law in Sweden that prevents from all types of discrimination and legislation that ill health at workplace should be prevented. A study was made in which the aim was to illuminate nurses’ experiences of racial discrimination caused by the patients. To reach the aim, the study was completed by a literature study and eight scientific result articles. Codes and analysis was completed by the result articles. The themes were the expression of racial discrimination and the consequences of racial discrimination. The main theme, which was the consequences of racial discrimination, was divided into two subtitles, which were feelings and coping strategies. The result showed that the patients used comments and facial expressions when they racially discriminated the nurses, which could lead to physical and mental as well as stress related damages. Being exposed to racial discrimination leads to negative feelings. Nurses have embraced different types of coping strategies in order to deal with racial discrimination, and in the worst case scenario if it didn´t work, their last alternative was to leave their workplace.
