Background: 1) To discover the fears and attitudes towards female patients
with HIV/AIDS among nurses working in labor and delivery room unit; 2) to
discover the fears and attitudes towards female patients with HIV/AIDS
among nurses working in a dedicated HIV/AIDS ambulatory facility; 3) to
compare nurses' attitudes and fears regarding caring for female patients
with HIV/AIDS among nurses working in the hospital and ambulatory care
facility; 4) to identify nurses' subjective concerns regarding the quality
of care for HIV/AIDS; 5) to specify the type of information needs for
nurses to improve the quality of care for female patients with HIV/AIDS.
Methods: A descriptive study using the AIDS questionnaire (Prince, et al,
1989) was conducted among nurses at a large Midwest United States of
America (U.S.A.) County hospital in the labor and delivery unit and an
affiliated ambulatory care facility for HIV/AIDS. The Theory of Reasoned
Action (TRA) of Ajzen-Fishbein was used a guide to understanding the
relationship among nursesÆ attitudes, intentions, and behavior. Results:
Nurses in both settings showed positive attitudes in caring for female
patients with HIV/AIDS. However, nurses working in labor and delivery room
have more fear than nurses working in the ambulatory facility. Overall,
nurses concerns were related to getting a needle stick with an infected
needle and exposure to blood and body fluids. Conclusions: Nurses in both
settings need to exchange current information regarding the quality care
for patients with HIV/AIDS. Nurse educators and clinicians are the crucial
resources for providing research findings to nurses working in both
settings. Nurses from both settings also need the supports and resources
from the administrators to improve their attitudes and decrease their
fears that affect their willingness and ability to care for patients with
HIV/AIDS.
