Background and purpose: Nurses working in the intensive care unit (ICU) face more ethical conflicts in caring for COVID-19 patients. The present study aimed to assess the relationship between moral disengagement and the quality of nursing care in nurses caring for Covid-19 patients hospitalized in the special ICU department of medical-educational centers affiliated with Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences.
Materials and methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 150 nurses caring for COVID-19 patients hospitalized in the ICU of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences from 2021 to 2022. Date collection tools included demographic information questionnaires, Fida et al.'s moral disengagement, and nursing care quality. Data analysis was performed using descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation) and inferential (Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression) statistics.
Results: The moral disengagement score of nurses was 40.58±8.64. The mean scores of quality of nursing care in total, psychosocial dimension, communication dimension, and physical dimension were 177.3±13.25, 74.92±6.50, 36.80± 2.82, and 66.73±5.45, respectively. No significant relationship was observed between the quality of nursing care and moral disengagement (P>0.05).
Conclusion: The lack of a significant relationship between the quality of nursing care and moral disengagement in the present study was in the condition of the COVID-19 pandemic when people were under high organizational and psychological pressures. Therefore, for a better conclusion, it is suggested that this research be carried out in non-emergency conditions and after the pandemic again in the inpatient wards of infected patients.
