"Do No Harm" Applies To Nurses Too!
Ask any nurse if he or she has heard the phrase, "Nurses eat their young, " and you'll get nods of sad recognition. Nurses choose their profession to deliver compassionate and effective patient care, and then they discover the ugly in nursing: nurses can be horrific to each other. Nurse bullying is a huge problem in healthcare. In this book, Dr. Renee Thompson tackles the dirty secret that has plagued nursing for years. Readers will learn practical ways to respond to the two types of bully behavior (overt and covert); how bullies choose their targets; specific steps to stop the bullying; sample responses to common bully attacks and a few bonus tips for managers and nurses who may be inadvertently contributing to the bullying. Nurses deserve to work in nurturing and supportive environments. Renee shows nurses how to make that happen by stopping the cycle of nurse-to-nurse bullying. Nurses are leaving their profession at alarming rates because of bullying and incivility. Dr. Renee Thompson provides nurses and their leaders with simple strategies to stop the cycle of nurse bullying.
