These problems along with regular three-time-a-week hemodialysis request a more frequent patient-nurse relationship Another aspect of caring attitude noted by some participants was accountability. Farber quotes that all professional people working in the treatment centers should have accountability, which should reveal itself in the nurse responsible behavior Mohammadi in his study on heart-surgery patients found that accountability was among the concepts that concerned the patients Knowledge, experience, and nimbleness of the nurses were among the issues emphasized by the participants.
The study by Mohammadi also showed that the majority of patients who were directly cared by a competent nurse enjoyed peace of mind and comfort The importance of the above issues is due to the fact that the hemodialysis center, compared to other centers, is a fully technical and specialized one.
Therefore, a nurse who is working there should also possess technical expertise, precision in her work, adequate information about the patient, dialysis treatment, and hemodialysis complications Another finding of this study concerned the positive comforting effect of the peers.
Studies have shown that peer group support is effective for renal patients and for patients who are undergoing long hemodialysis treatment 29 ; however, the important and fundamental point here is the presence of patients with a positive and happy spirit, which comforts not only the person but also the others.
The participants also played the role of visitors during the hemodialysis. Visitors play an inspiring role in the absence of the nurse by speaking with the patient and caring for him.
But, hospital policies are different in this regard. Many centers totally prevent visiting because of over crowdedness, necessity of quick actions in emergency situations, observing the privacy of the patient, and preventing noise and infection. However, some centers allow their presence for their assistance and support during the treatment, creating a friendly environment, the convenience in training the families, and assisting in setting the bed, etc.
Accordingly, based on the findings of the conducted studies, and due to the importance of the presence of these people, and their advantages and disadvantages for patients, the accompaniment of at least one person is necessary.
The role of the family was also emphasized by the patients. Bellou et al.
They can assist patients who are under treatment in hospitals by offering effective psychological and emotional supports The families of the patients who receive hemodialysis cannot constantly accompany them, despite patients' tendency. The patients claimed that they should spend at least four hours in each session which is pretty long. Another finding of the study was the issue of easy coping with obstacles, denoting that patients were active in the process of achieving comfort during the hemodialysis.
The patients believed that, despite many problems of hemodialysis, they felt comfortable because of positive thinking. Many studies have shown that a positive attitude is vital to maintain motivation In a study by Yousefi et al. Praying played a significant role in this research It is obvious that hemodialysis patients should spend three 4-hour dialysis sessions per week, which takes a large portion of their time and makes them face a boring experience 15 ; therefore, the patient uses different approaches to pass this time.
A research by Asgari et al. The current study results indicated that the treatment team, hospital officials and the patient himself should do their utmost to let hemodialysis patients achieve comfort, which is not possible without the intervention of nurses and hospital officials.
Nurses can play a significant role in comforting these patients because they have the most direct contact with them and are able to identify and provide comforting elements.
Nurses play a key role in the treatment team.
They can form suitable relationship, assist to create positive attitude in the patient, and provide an appropriate caring context for them. The limitation of this study, similar to the other qualitative studies, was that the findings could not be generalized to the target population. Thus; the researchers in the current study tried their best to achieve the maximum reliability. References 1.
