Abstract

Existing studies show that nurses often experience moral distress when the care they deliver to patients does not meet their professional values. We draw on ethnographic data collected in June 2015 from one acute care trust in England and present how frontline healthcare staff experience organizing complex hospital discharges. Our findings demonstrate how problems with the panel responsible for allocating funding for National Health Service continuing healthcare cases contributed to healthcare staff experiencing moral distress. Our findings offer a basis for further research on how other aspects of the complex hospital discharge-planning process may contribute to nurses’ experiencing moral distress.
