Have any of you experienced verbal abuse during your job??? Just curious -
Thank You -
I have experienced verbal abuse for the past 2 week from patients. I work numerous jobs, but with my short stay job, a suicidal patient who also happened to be a veteran was very verbally abusive, calling staff every name in the book except for sir or mam. My most recent experience was with another suicidal OD patient who yelled all night and then when you came in the room he made derogatory comments toward me and then proceeded to yell the word c--t(another name for a female anatomy part) for two hours! By the way, I am just in orientation a this job...considering a change in position already! He knew what he was doing because he apologized numerous times, he was just yelling to get attention and to get the pain drugs he wanted!
