ARAUJO, Carla Luzia França; SIGNES, Aline Faria  and  ZAMPIER, Vanderleia Soéli de Barros. The care to puerperae with HIV/AIDS in the multiple-patient rooms: the vision of the nursing team. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp.49-56. ISSN 1414-8145.

The study aims to analyze the vision that the nursing team has on the care to HIV -positive postpartum women and implementation of prevention of vertical transmission of HIV in the rooms. It is a qualitative research approach. It was conducted in a maternity in the municipality of Nova Iguaçu / Rio de Janeiro. The collective subject discourse was used as a technical and methodological resource. After analyzing the speeches we see that the nursing staff does not have a proper approach to the postpartum seropositive. The implementation of actions developed in multiple patient rooms for the prevention of vertical transmission of HIV was not recognized by the study subjects. We conclude that there is a need for the nursing staff assisting in the multiple patient rooms to have better qualification regarding the assistance to mothers with HIV, in particular on the vertical transmission of HIV prevention actions.

Keywords : Nursing care; Multiple patient rooms; Women’s health; HIV seropositivity.
