The baby K case: ethical challenges of preserving professional integrity.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Caring for Baby K, an infant born with anencephaly, created moral distress and violated the integrity of some nurses. This article explores the nature of professional nurses' claims of violations of their integrity, argues for a broader moral framework for examining such dilemmas, and suggests strategies for addressing these issues in the clinical setting.
