If you have worked long enough in nursing, you have likely had the unpleasant confrontation with a bully nurse, respiratory therapist, tech, or doctor. It is a silent epidemic plaguing hospitals all over the world. Lay people have no idea that it exists and can actually adversely affect patient outcomes. It is every single nurse’s responsibility to report any witnessed bullying. While my latest post for Mighty Nurse focuses on nurse bullying specifically, this applies to any bully-whether nurse, therapists, techs, or doctors. Zero tolerance is the only solution.
