Quote from sanctuary
I am unfamiliar with the term "mobbing." Can you clarify?
I believe "Mobbing" is a major reason that nurses leave hospital practice. Anyone who has raised valid questions to shared governance shams, and encroachment on nursing practice by unlicensed aides, and resisted drinking the Kool-Aid to become a workforce redesigned Stepford Nurse will recognize the disease. An important book has been written titled, MOBBING: Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace (Davenport, Schwartz, Elliott). It identifies 10 key factors of the mobbing syndrome: 1. Assaults on the dignity, integrity, credibility, and professional competence of the employees. 2. Negative, humiliating, intimidating, abusive, malevolent, and controlling communication. 3. Committed directly, or indirectly, in subtle or obvious ways. 4. Perpetrated by one or more staff members--"vulturing." 5. Occuring in a continual, multiple, and systematic fashion, over some time. 6. Portraying the victimized person as being at fault. 7. Engineered to discredit, confuse, intimidate, isolate, and force the person into submission. 8. Committed with the intent to force the person out. 9. Representing the removal from the workplace as the victim's choice. 10. Not recognized, misinterpreted, ignored, tolerated, encouraged, or even instigated by the management of the organization.
