Bullies in Healthcare

Renee Thompson on www.SAGEClinician.com

“Nurse eat their young”. I don’t know about you, but I heard that back in the 1970’s. And it’s still around today.

Bullying is not something that is unique to nurses. In fact, when I speak to other professionals, they tell me it’s there to:  other healthcare providers, lawyers, teachers and business people. And it’s with us…the advance practice nurse (nurse practitioners) and physician assistants.

I had the opportunity to speak with Renee Thompson about this topic on episode #15 of the SAGEClinician podcast.

Listen in as we talk about

  • What is bullying?
  • Who is a bully?
  • How can you tell if someone is a bully or just having a bad day?
  • WHY does it continue in nursing?
  • What can clinicians do about bullying?
  • Negative and positive competition.
  • The difference between being aggressive and being assertive.

I love to hear your comments on this important topic.
