Bullying in Nursing and Its Impact on Care, Medivizor, @RTconnections, @drkdhoffman, #Nurseup, #HorizontalViolence

Bullying in Nursing and Its Impact on Care. Medivizor, @RTconnections, @drkdhoffman:"Do nurses eat their young? Renee Thompson asks.  The answer may surprise you.   “Nurses know we eat our young.  Some nurses think it’s good to “toughen up” the new nurses. In reality it’s not. It decreases confidence and competence. “

Thompson, nurse, author, educator and advocate for workplace change, is making it her mission to bring bullying in nursing to light.  She speaks nationwide to healthcare organizations and academic institutions on bullying.  Thompson has witnessed behaviors ranging from “overt-screaming, yelling and openly criticizing in front of others to covert-sabotage, backstabbing and undermining.” Bullying can be as simple as “being nice to your face, but then complaining about you to other nurses all night” to as complicated as “gathering a “posse” against you.”
