Abstract

TAMAYO BALDOQUIN, María Margarita. Qué espera de la enfermera con respecto al tratamiento emocional el paciente con Virus de Inmunodeficiencia Humana. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.1, pp.25-33. ISSN 0864-0319.

The present research paper is based on a SURVEY carried out from April to June in which 80 HIV/AIDS patients of a total of 174 treated in the Sanatorim at Santiago de las Vegas participated. It was a descriptive study which takes the lenght of stay of a patient (3 months more or less) as a basis. A number of questions were selected to find out what the patients expect from nurses and how they considered it from the emotional viewpoint in addition to the main concerns of a patient when he/she is diagnosed with the disease. We concluded that a highly skilled nursing staff is capable of giving advice to these persons in the face of their problems and/or sending them to more specialized staff such as psychiatrists, psychologists, etc). We also believe that all the staff in close relation with these patients should be trained so as to support them emotionally.
