Abstract

The caregivers play a crucial role in maintaining the health and happiness of patients, typically losing their self-management abilities. This society should appreciate their work; people in the academic world should envision their work values as well as their inner mindsets in order to provide meaningful rewards and build a favorable nurse-patient relationship. This study, taking qualitative research approaches, was conducted to in-depth understand the caregivers’ sense of work value the caregivers through and patients interviews and observing interaction behaviors with patients and their families. Authentic data resulted from a series of interviews accompanying on-site observations were analyzed and validated with triangulation according to research purpose. Finally, this study drew the following conclusions: 1. The caregivers generally possessed hearty patient-centered work values perceiving patients as friends, even family members; 2. Their hard work and enthusiastic dedication built the imperative trust as well as respect from patients and hospital professionals, which reciprocally enhanced the caregivers’ self-recognition and work values from laboring up to actualization of social contribution; 3. The caregivers transformed their sense of work values through self-recognition, enthusiastic dedication, affable interaction with colleagues and patients, and self-respect to the work and people. Caregivers work very hard in workplace, they get positive feedback, and build colorful lives of the patients, their family, and even their own.
