Abstract
Objective

To learn the opinion of a group of young patients about health personnel with tattoos.

Method

Descriptive study conducted in the first semester of 2017 on patients admitted to the Obstetrics Unit of the Hospital Complex of Ourense.

The data collection was carried out by means of a self-administered questionnaire prepared “in-house” where several photographs of health professionals with and without tattoos were shown.

A descriptive analysis of the variables and nonparametric tests were carried out to determine the potential association between the variables, using the statistical package SPSS 15.0®.

Results

A total of 66 patients participated. Regardless of whether or not the study participants had tattoos themselves, they all scored the non-tattooed better than the tattooed health professionals, although these differences were less in the participants who had tattoos. No significant data were found in any of the cases.

Conclusions

The participants of our study scored tattooed health professionals more poorly in terms of their professionalism, credibility, closeness and involvement compared to their counterparts without tattoos.

Resumen
Objetivo

Conocer la opinión de un grupo de pacientes jóvenes ante el personal sanitario con tatuajes.

Método

Estudio descriptivo realizado en el primer semestre de 2017 en las pacientes ingresadas en la Unidad de Obstetricia del Complexo Hospitalario de Ourense.

La recogida de datos se realizó mediante un cuestionario autoadministrado de elaboración propia, donde se mostraban varias fotografías de profesionales sanitarios con y sin tatuajes.

Se realizó un análisis descriptivo de las variables y se realizaron pruebas no paramétricas para determinar la asociación potencial entre las variables, utilizándose el paquete estadístico SPSS 15.0®.

Resultados

Participaron un total de 66 pacientes. Independientemente de si las participantes del estudio tuviesen o no tatuajes, todas puntuaron mejor a los profesionales sanitarios no tatuados, en comparación con los tatuados, aunque estas diferencias son menores en las participantes que a su vez tienen tatuajes. No se han encontrado datos significativos en ninguno de los casos.

Conclusiones

Los participantes de nuestro estudio valoran peor a los profesionales sanitarios tatuados en relación con su profesionalidad, credibilidad y cercanía e implicación en comparación con sus homólogos sin tatuajes.
