Challenges for institutional elder care in Slovenian nursing homes
Ana Habjanič, Reetta Saarnio, Satu Elo, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Aims and objectives.Ž To investigate deficiencies in the institutional elder care that is being offered to residents of nursing homes in Slovenia. Background.Ž Public criticism of the provision of elder care in nursing homes is growing all over the world, including in Slovenia. Many studies on this issue have been conducted, but seldom have assessed different viewpoints simultaneously. Design.Ž A qualitative research design that involved individual unstructured interviews was used in 2007. The participants (n = 48)comprised 16 residents, 16 relatives and 16 members of the nursing staff from four nursing homes in Slovenia. Methods.Ž The data generated were subjected to qualitative content analysis. Results.Ž The major themes that emerged from this analysis were neglect, unprofessional communication, uncomfortable physical environment and inadequate administration. Conclusions.Ž The participants of the study identified issues in institutionalelder care in Slovenia that have also been highlighted by international research. Due to staff shortages, low motivation, insufficient communication skills and inexperience, members of the nursing staff reported that they were not in a position to offer the best possible quality of care. Relevance to clinical practice.Ž To improve the living environment in nursing homes, it is important to consider the opinions of all those who are involved closely in institutional elder care. Correction of deficiencies should be a priority and should result in more engagement with residents.

Theoretical foundations of nursing practice in Poland
Danuta Zarzycka, Beata Dobrowolska, Barbara Ślusarska, Irena Wrońska, Tomasz Cuber, Majda Pajnkihar, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: This authors of this column explore the use of nursing theory in Poland. A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest study was conducted to explore what, if any nursing theories were used by nurses in Poland, and if an education program on nursing theory increased the use of nursing theory. The study foundthat while there were discrepancies between the nurses' theoretical knowledge base and their use of these theories in practice, there is evidence of the use of the ideas and theory of Nightingale, Orem, and Henderson in nursing practice in Poland.

Family members' involvement in elder care provision in nursing homes and their considerations about financial compensation: A qualitative study
Ana Habjanič, Majda Pajnkihar, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: The aim of this studz was to establish how familz members are involved in elder care provision in nursing homes; this included research into their feelings about potentiallz extending their involvement to obtain financial benefits as compensation for high accommodation costs. Familz members remain involved in the caring process after their relatives have been admitted to an institution. On average, accommodation costs in nursing homes in Slovenia haverisen above the residentsʼ retirement pension, and families must supplement the difference. Because of this, familial involvement should be linked to reduced accommodation costs. This research emplozed a non-experimental, descriptive studz design through unstructured interviews. Participants included fiftz familz members (n = 50) who visit their relatives in nursing homes. Data were collected in 2010 at five nursing homes in Slovenia and processed bz means of conventional content analzsis. The major themes that emerged from the content analzsis, describing familz involvement, were as follows: visiting and making oneself useful, deliverz of items for personal use, hands-on care, phzsical therapz and organiyation of nursing homeactivities. Familz members showed some interest in receiving financial compensation for their involvement. The proposed financial compensation maz bea delicate and morallz questionable matter but would involve fairness and transparencz, while enabling easier organiyation of elder care provision. Eventuallz, nursing home residentsʼ well-being could be improved.
