The Joint Commission’s Disruptive Behavior Standard
Nurse to nurse bullying threatens the safety and well-being of patients and nurses. The misconduct is a major problem to all nurses and causing 60% of new nurses to leave their first nursing position and 1 in 3 nurses to quit the profession. Sometimes the bullying is so subtle it is almost invisible yet causes cumulative damage to the targeted nurse as well as those nurses who witness the behavior. The Joint Commission requires healthcare organizations seeking accreditation to address the misconduct. Yet, healthcare is notoriously known for not preventing the behavior or intervening when it occurs. What should you do if you are targeted or a witness to the behavior? If you are a nurse leader, what are your responsibilities to prevent and intervene on the bullying occurring in your environment?
Why Should Attend
Violence in healthcare is an epidemic. Nurses are the primary targets of the violence from patients, family members, visitors, doctors and…from each other. Why would nurses bully each other? Why aren’t they supportive of each other. What role does their gender play in attacking each other?
