Anushka Dimitrova

Abstract

Intensive care is a specific diagnostic and treatment process for patients with disruption of critical vital functions and/or patients expected to have decompensation in vital functions in the immediate future. The application of intensive treatment and care for life-saving situations is based on an orderly system, with its diverse aspects regulated and developed. The objective of the completed study is discovering the need for improving competence of nurses employed in intensive care structures. A documentary method, a sociological method (questionnaire) and a graphic method for visual illustration of the deliverables have been employed in the study. The object of the study is 246 nurses, employed in intensive care clinics/units. Results and discussion. More than half of nurses (54.47%) are satisfied by their professional realization in intensive treatment structures. For 84.55% of nurses, extra knowledge is important, 67.48% of nurses consider they have the qualification necessary to work, almost half have never been part of a postgraduate training. Conclusions. Nurses employed in intensive care structures have extensive length of service and experience. More than half have high self-assessment marks for professional qualification. Only half of nurses have completed post-graduate training to improve their professional qualification in the scope of intensive care.
