Summary This study comprises an ethnography and exlores caring, as expressed through inter-relationships, coalitions and conflicts between nurses, residents and others within a bureaucratic setting. Observation, reflection on practice, and professional journalling were used to identify unexamined beliefs which lay hidden in day-to-day practices. An action research project was developed to introduce a small change in practice. It was found that the bureaucratic need for predictability and stability militated against this change.
