Bullying in Nursing
Nurse bullying has been around since we donned our white uniforms.
I’m quite sure that nurses back in the early 1800s experienced the same behaviors we see today (intimidation, open criticism, exclusion, etc.).
Every nurse has heard the phrase, “nurses eat their young” and were warned about the mean, crusty nurses when they were in nursing school. The problem is, now we eat our young, our old, and everything in between!
With the increased attention on professional practice, inter-professional relationships, innovation and advanced education, shouldn’t nurse bullying be decreasing?
As I travel the globe helping individuals and organizations eliminate workplace bullying, this question often comes up.
Is bullying getting better or worse?
Hostile Work Environment – How to Document & Prove
Hostile work environment is any situation that makes a person feel consistently uncomfortable at their place of employment.
However, in order for an employee to utilize the legal system, there must be proof of inappropriate conduct.
Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other applicable Federal laws, inappropriate conduct that creates a hostile working environment includes situations in which a person is harassed or discriminated against due to their race, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability.
Furthermore, hostile environment must be pervasive and severe enough that it deviates from the terms and conditions of a person’s employment.
It must create an environment that is abusive and not conducive for an employee to operate in, thereby affecting the quality of their work.
The test is that a reasonable person would find the environment to be hostile or abusive.
