Abstract [en]

Background: Sleep is the most important human recovery process and research supports assumptions that sleep is an important component in the healing process. Lack of sleep can be the onset of certain diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Sleep is an integral part of basic nursing. It is important for nurses in hospitals to form a correct understanding of the patients’ sleep since they among other things are responsible for administering ad lib hypnotic medication. Aim: To examine the sleep habits of inpatients in two hospitals in southern Sweden, and to compare these with the patients’ sleeping habits in the home a month before hospitalization. Method: Statistical analysis of a part of a Point Prevalence Study among inpatients in southern Sweden. Results: Patients in hospitals reported that they had slept poorly and had lower sleep quality than at home. Forty percent experienced sleep during hospitalization as poor or very poor. The use of hypnotics was significantly higher in-hospital than at home, and the increase was gender related. Conclusion: The study supports previous findings with respect to sleep disturbances, but also with respect to how nurses relate to sleep and sleep disturbances in patients. A thorough self-reflection is stipulated as a way to pass the symbolic barrier to the implementation of existing knowledge.
