Vulnerable groups with respect to health care are those susceptible to heightened adverse physical, psychological, or sociological health because of their particular status within society (De Chesnay & Anderson, 2008). Nurses and other health care professionals who work with non-institutionalized patients regularly provide care for members of vulnerable groups (Bailey, 2010). "Vulnerable populations include individuals living in poverty, those having immigrant status, people of color, and people who are marginalized by their sexual preference and/or religion" (Bailey, 2010, p. 55).
