Moral reasoning among professional caregivers in nursing homes
Sophiahemmet University College.

Abstract [en]

This article examines the responses from a sample of Swedish nursing home staff workers to a hypothetical ethical conflict highlighting the issue of restraint. The responses were analyzed in two ways: first, Piaget's theory of moral development was used to differentiate between "autonomous" and "heteronomous" awareness, and second, the responses were analyzed from the perspective of ethical principles, that is, autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. The findings indicate that autonomous ethical awareness took precedence over heteronomous ethical awareness. The dominant moral values were the principle of beneficence, followed by the principle of autonomy.
