Nordström, K., & Wangmo, T. (2018). Caring for elder patients: Mutual vulnerabilities in professional ethics. Nursing Ethics, 25(8), 1004–1016. This article shows the mutual vulnerabilities within three themes, which include the interactions between the family, nursing staff, and older patients. The article studies how incidences of error, neglect, and abuse are consequences of their own vulnerability since they are not able to meet the demands of an over-straining work situation.
You will learn how educational and, continuous training, as well as better management from the institution, are necessary to maintain professionalism while handling at-risk senior patients.
