[Double taboo: disabled people, sexual needs during the care in the hospital]

FORRAI Judit

[This paper presents the situation and perceptions of nurses regarding sexuality related to disabled patient care in hospital. The nurses have difficulty dealing with issues of sexuality, and the reasons for this were complex and interrelated. Patient care is influenced by nurses’ perceptions of sexuality. Nurses basically could discuss of sexuality with their patients however, the sexuality is a fundamental part of being human. A person’s sexuality or sexual health can be temporarily or permanently altered by illness or treatment. Nurses are well suited to deal with patients’ needs regarding sexuality, because nurses are in constant contact with patients and because of the intimate nature of care that nurses could provide the sexual care, information’s and education on this field. Professional boundaries are the spaces between the nurse’s “power” and the patient’s vulnerability. The power of the nurse comes from the nurse’s professional position and access to sensitive personal information. Nurses should make every effort to respect the power imbalance and ensure a patient- centered relationship.]

Data were analyzed with SPSS 23.0; Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Shapiro-Wilk, Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests (Bonferroni correction) and Spearman’s rank correlation were applied (p<0.05). Results: Only 4.6% of the 1201 responders had never experienced any work-related conflicts. Burnout is present on some level by 44.2% of them. In the case of a conflict 62.2% tries to settle the problem with the source of the conflict; 41.2% talks back and one-third gets angry and unsettled.

MISZORY Erika Viktória

[Objectives: To analyse, whether the mental and physical health of the healthcare staff can be influenced by movement therapy. Methods: Between May and July 2016 we held multiple movement therapy sessions within the healthcare staff of the the Hungarian Army Medical Center, Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Institute in Hévíz. With the help of the so called General Health Questionnare I collected information about the mental state of the participants. This questionnaire included 12 questions and had to be filled out by each and every person alone. From the physical variables perspective I collected information from the staff in regards to the mobility of their spine. Microsoft Excel was used for the analysis of the data and to prove the significance of the variables, I used the T-probe method. Results: Majority of the participants has both internal medicine and musculosceletal problems, symphtoms and diseases. Though the psychic stress on them can be clearly seen, it can be treated with movement therapy efficiently. On the other hand, I could not find any significant change in the variables related to the spine-movements. Conclusions: With the help of regular movement therapy the mental state of the staff can be efficiently infleunced and improved. Further studies suggested a greater number of elements, for detected the physical changes.]
