Healthcare is getting more and more complex. Increasing demands, decreasing resources, burn out and bullying are huge contributing factors to how employees show up every day.
As a result, we are seeing more and more disruptive behaviors showing up in the workplace. Public criticisms, threatening or intimidating comments, blaming, sabotage, nurse bullying and incivility, and workplace violence are all impacting patient care.
The impact of disruptive behaviors is devastating.
The Joint Commission found in 2014 that 63% of cases resulting in the unanticipated death or permanent disability of a patient could be traced back to a communication failure by hospital staff.
71% of physicians and nurses linked incivility to medical error
27% linked incivility to a patient’s death
99% of physicians (out of 800) believed bad behavior negatively impacted patient care
