Moral Injury of Nurses

Why Unionize?

Moral Injury is a deep soul wound that pierces a person’s identity, sense of morality, and relationship to society” when working in our current healthcare system.

Moral injury is being unable to provide high-quality care and healing in the context of health care.  Failing to consistently meet patients’ needs has a profound impact on physician wellbeing — this is the crux of consequent moral injury.

Routine, incessant betrayals of patient care and trust are examples of “death by a thousand cuts.” Any one of them, delivered alone, might heal. But repeated on a daily basis, they coalesce into the moral injury of health care.

Talbot, S. and Dean, W. (2018) Physicians aren’t burning out: They’re suffering from moral injury. STAT, First Opinion, July 26, 2018.

Short Staffing, Not being Heard – Result in Nurses Choosing to Unionize

Unionizing allows a third party voice to hear the complaints and stories of nurses who feel they have been neglected, with a voice at the table for safe staffing, lower nurse patient ratios and accommodations for patients with high acuity.

It is the long standing trends of Nurses not feeling supported for high nurse patient ratios, inadequate staffing, high patient acuity, not enough staff, not being able to provide the care and support we are trained to deliver for patients and families and more.

The causes of chronic nursing moral injury are not being addressed. 

Support unionization to address nurse moral injury!
