The present qualitative study was based on a hermeneutic phenomenological approach. The population included the patient’s families with Covid-19 admitted to the Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran during 2021-2022. After the initial investigation, 16 patient’s family’s members were selected through purposive sampling method. Data collection was done through in‐depth, semi-structured interviews. The data were analyzed following the method proposed by Diekelman et al. As for data management, Software MAXQDA version 10 was used.


Thirteen participants were female and 3 were male with a mean age of 31 years. The five main themes along with their sub themes were identified: “in the turbulent of the disease”, “emotional fluctuation”, “living with perception of loneliness”, “a flash of hope” and “in search of compatibility”.


The families of patients with Covid-19 admitted to the hospital appear to be experiencing a number of challenges. Nurse and treatment team can provide support for patient’s family and also, they can play an effective role in preventing adverse complications.
