Before you arrange to meet the nurse, ask her to write down precisely what has been happening in as much detail as possible, including the dates, times and locations, as well as the names and job titles of everyone who may have witnessed the bullying.

It has even been linked to increased patient mortality. This article demonstrates the critical need to resolve the issue of nurse bullying. It also shows that previous attempts of resolution have not been successful, which may be partly due to the fact that the problem is relatively unacknowledged outside the nursing profession. To resolve the problem of nurse bullying, we believe that the solution must include an incentive for institutions to implement the necessary interventions and to ensure that they are effective...
