YES.....Horizontal and/or Vertical violence in the workplace, especially in the healthcare setting, I believe, is growing to levels of major concern, such that, the negative impact as a result of such violence is detrimental to both the Nurse as well as Pt, furthermore, the impact it has on the rest of those within such an environment. I believe it has for far too long been tossed by the way-side, swept under the carpet, ignored by managment (although not ignored by the managment where I am employed as a L&D Nurse, I'm proud to report), at any rate, please hear me when I say IT'S TIME FOR NURSES TO BAN TOGETHER AND STAND UP FOR THEIR RIGHTS, ADVOCATE FOR THEMSELVES & THEIR PATIENTS AND STOP WORKPLACE VIOLENCE ONCE & FOR ALL. DEMAND THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE...NOBODY WILL DO IT FOR YOU.
