CBC radio show on nurse bullying

This White Coat Black Art show aired in September 2011, but I hadn’t had a chance to listen to it yet. Click here to listen to Dr Brian Goldman investigate the phenomenon of nurse bullying. There is a great interview with Kathleen Bartholomew, author of “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat their Young and Each Other.” It certainly fits with what I’ve heard from nurses across Canada. An alarming situation.

    Came across this while web-sleuthing subsequent to recent revelations about Mr. Brian Sinclair’s death after being neglected in a Winnipeg ER. As a nurse for over 20 years, who ultimately won a harassment grievance against toxic nursing management @ my workplace, I know – for a fact! – how utterly destructive nurse-bullying can be. It’s over 15 years since I resigned from nursing after my health ultimately gave out (at least partially due to job-related burnout … ), and I’m still dealing with the after-effects of ill-treatment I received from nursing colleagues.
    Apart from myself, however, this kind of toxic working environment produces dis-ease – at least affecting staff, if not trickling down to patients. This kind of management is anything BUT a ‘healing’ one.
