Abstract:
Nursing has long been identified as a culture of bullying. This behavior has lead to many nurses leaving the workforce, others have retreated into denial. The negative effects of workplace violence, otherwise known as Horizontal Violence, have long lasting effects. These effects include excessive calling in, decrease in productivity, increased nursing errors, depression and anxiety. All of which lead to an adverse effect on patient care. An awareness week was held during the nationally recognized Freedom From Bully's week. Handouts were provided with scripting and scenarios that outlined horizontal violence prevention tools. A video was shown with examples of horizontal violence among nurses, and how to recognize the behaviors within yourself and others. Ribbons and pledge cards were handed out signifying that the owner took a stand against horizontal violence. A graffiti wall was created to allow employees to express positive messages to each other. As a result, many nurses have become aware of their own detrimental behavior and used the tools provided to change the way they interact with peers. A culture change has been recognized by other disciplines, from physicians to housekeeping. This presentation will provide information on Horizontal Violence and tools to combat the issue.
