Abstract

OLIVEIRA, Stefanie Griebeler  and  KRUSE, Maria Henriqueta Luce. BETTER OFF AT HOME: SAFETY DEVICE. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.1, e2660015.  Epub May 29, 2017. ISSN 1980-265X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0104-07072017002660015.

Objetive:

to problematize the home care proposed by the Melhor em Casa Program as a safety device for understanding knowledge and conditions of possibility that support its discoursive network.

Method:

it is a study of genealogical inspiration about home care. The empirical material was constituted by legal documents about the theme, published in the Diário Oficial. The extracts that supposingly had the power to extract truth were organized in a spreadsheet. The analytic units were constructed, and instruments proposed by Foucault, such as power, biopolitics and device, were used for document analysis.

Results:

two analytic categories were elaborated: "From hospital to home", and "Home care: safety for the patient or for the State?".

Conclusion:

Home care, as a security device, proposes home as a safer and better place for the patient, who is close to the family, with no risk of hospital infection, cared by the health team, with the necessary technology.

Keywords : Home care services; Nursing; Documents.
