机构老人尊严概念分析Long-Term Care Institution of Elderly; Dignity; Concept Analysis



Dignity is human natural requirement, which has no rank discrimination. The concept of dignity to humans always keeps changing in the process of historical evolution. Although there are many domestic and foreign literatures regarding dignity, none tries to further analyze and sort out this concept. This article clarifies the conceptual definition and characteristics of dignity by way of adopting domestic and foreign literatures, and takes the institution of elderly people for example, establishing typical model, borderline and opposite case explanations, applying empirical references and medical care. The result shows that dignity is the subjective sense varying from person to person, which will be influenced by personal physical condition, their environment and caregivers. We hope it can enhance medical staffs of long-term care institution to understand more about the concept of dignity through this experience of sharing, find out the problem of the residents as early as possible and provide medical precautions in good time so that the residents retain the human dignity and get access to good quality of life.
