May 6-12 Nurses Week recognizing Caring & Bullied health professionals
May 6 launched Nurses Week, promoted by the American Nurses Association. It’s a time to honor some of the most selfless working professionals you will ever know. Florence Nightingale was the founder of the profession. The 2012 theme for the Week is Advocating, Leading, Caring.
The sad part is that for all their caring and altruism that benefits all of us, the sacrifices of personal health and workplace status are staggering. Nurses are the primary targets of workplace bullying in the healthcare world. Not only do arrogant physicians (lords of the trade) pummel nurses, nurses often mistreat their own. They call it “lateral violence.”
WBI salutes Nurses for understanding workplace bullying and for being such strong advocates for our legislation in states to prevent and correct bullying. Thank you.
