The health care sector is no exception to this form of violence, and in fact, it is an increasingly growing and challenging problem. This treatment by a colleague in the caring profession is damaging to the nurses themselves, the patients, and the workplace. Although lateral violence can occur in various types of workplaces, it is especially harmful and dangerous when it takes place in the nursing field. The care of sick individuals is hard and stressful work. Nurses spend long hours attempting to meet the needs of, not only the patient, but the families and colleagues as well.

Karen may have been more upset at herself than her company. At the time she thought money was her main motivator.

The fact that her main motivator was being fulfilled could be the reason why she undervalued her work and failed to ask for an adequate raise. Another assumption is that women often took jobs for the wrong reasons (Gunn and Gullickson, 2007).
He had plans of future revenges toward Robin. Rashad may still complete the task that Robin ask, but the sense of disrespect and anger will prevent Rashad from working to his full potential which can affect the quality of patient care.

Dangers of Ineffective Communication in Healthcare Nurses rely on their education, training skills and experience to succeed in their helping profession. At the same time, the ability to read, write and understand is crucial in delivering proper patient care. Ineffective communication skills can seriously harm or kill a patient, as shown through improper documentation, miscommunication and overwhelming job demands. Nurses deal with patients more than any other healthcare professional, as well; much of their time is spent on paperwork pertaining to the patient’s health. Writing must be clear, accurate and legible, together with correct spelling and punctuation.
However, it's not always true that another nurse is doing the right thing. Situations arise that can lead a nurse to make mistakes and set a poor example. Advocacy 2. Advocacy ranges from activities on behalf of patients, such as hand washing and proper identification before treatments, to arguing that an early discharge will harm her patient's recovery.

This can also affect patient care because not every patient is receiving the highest level of care from someone who is overworked and exhausted. There has been a number of quality initiatives aimed at facilities such as these and much research has been done regarding a patient’s survival verses the number of staff to patients.
