Abstract

Summary

Objective. Describe the meaning for patients of rejection of health care Methodology. Research with a phenomenological approach carried out in Medellín, Colombia between 2008 and 2009; included 12 adults between the ages of 27 and 54 who were hospitalized. The in-depth interview was used to collect information. Data were analyzed according to the scheme proposed by Cohen, Kahan and Steeves. Results. Fear, suffering, dependence as well as ignorance and the "bad reputation" of professionals, institutions or procedures contribute to the rejection of care. Discussion. Patients reject disease because of pain and suffering, and knowledge plays a double role in health care because it helps to accept or reject care and to promote patient acceptance and satisfaction. Conclusion. Rejection is a decision by patients in response to situations related to the disease, the knowledge and behaviors of nurses and must be taken into account by nurses.
