Disability and Human Rights, and the increasingly aging nursing workforce, coupled with management need to increase resource efficiency and produce added economic value from labor costs, is the backdrop to this research study. Interviews with physically disabled nurses and other healthcare professionals central to the organization of nursing work, reveal the reality of discriminatory practices facing nurses. Nursing ideologies are shown to be shaped by political, economic, cultural and social factors. This research warns that nurses themselves are allowing their own attitudes to risk reducing professional nursing to being valued mainly for its physical labor component.This book provides new insights and perspectives to anyone interested in disability issues, to theorists interested in how nursing staff organize their workload and deliver their expertise to both their employer and their patients, and to students wanting to learn how to conduct research using grounded theory. In particular it is a useful illustration of labor process theory.
