During the course of field observations for an ethnographic study of home care nurses' job stress, Hurricane Hugo struck the community, causing extensive damage.
The nurses' office building was heavily damaged by wind and water, and their office was not habitable for almost a week.
The author had observed the nurses'work practices over 10 weeks before the hurricane.
In the aftermath of the storm, the nurses were simultaneously disaster victims and caregivers for other victims.
They experienced grief, anger, and frustration about their losses, as well as conflict between their family- and work-related responsibilities.
