Nursing homes were a strongly affected setting during the COVID-19 pandemic, and nursing home staff were key personnel in the fight against the coronavirus and its impacts. Few studies – and especially few qualitative studies – have been conducted to explore situations in nursing home settings in depth during this time. Therefore, we performed a study to assess burdens placed staff working in nursing homes during the pandemic as well as the consequences of the situation. We conducted a qualitative descriptive interview study with 18 participants. Interviews were carried out with a semi-structured interview method. Data were analysed with a qualitative content analysis method by combining an inductive and deductive coding frame.
