Abstract (summary)
This book addresses selected violations of professional nursing conduct and practices that take place in shadows or on the margins of clinical practice--incidents that represent "dark" or "gray" areas of nursing. Chapters identify threats to patient and nurse well-being that are antithetical to nurses' principles; sensitize nurses and other stakeholders to gray and dark sides of nursing through case examples; and pose evidence-based solutions for eliminating, mitigating, and addressing examples representing the gray or dark side of nursing. The book encourages organizations to promote a culture of ethical responsibility for nursing practices
