[Research Presentation] Purpose: The aims of this research study were to: 1) determine if there is a relationship between individual and organizational factors and workplace incivility in the hospital setting and 2) evaluate the impact of workplace incivility on costs, absenteeism, and productivity with staff nurses. Methods: This pilot study was a non-experimental correlational design. The setting was a community hospital in the south central United States. The sample was composed of 47 nurses who completed the survey from the population of 266 direct care registered nurses. The instruments utilized were: the Nursing Incivility Scale (NIS), the Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ), and a demographic component. The instruments possessed sound psychometrics. The pilot study received IRB approval from the study site and an academic institution. Results: There was a positive relationship between absences due to emotional reasons (individual factor) and the nurse subscale of the NIS. There was a negative correlation between the organizational factor, manager's ability to handle workplace incivility and the nurse, direct supervisor, and general environment subscales of the NIS. There was a no relationship between workplace incivility and productivity in the pilot study. Conclusion:   The results indicate that there are relationships between individual and organizational factors and workplace incivility. The pilot study demonstrates that the larger study is feasible. The larger study will be conducted in 2009.
