Description

Over half of nurses in the United States have experienced workplace bullying, which raises the concern of hospitals maintaining a healthy work environment. Until a manager of higher power is convinced and willing to acknowledge the problem of workplace bullying, the offender will continue to target new employees and cause turmoil for workers and patients in the hospital. This work environment also causes harm and endangers patients.
There are different initiatives hospitals can implement to help eliminate workplace bullying, such as improving leadership training and communication throughout the departments of the hospital. Once these tactics are put into place, hospitals can start saving money, employing happier people, and providing better healthcare services for their patients.
