Nurse bullies may not always recognize their behavior

Hospitals have long acknowledged a culture of bullying and hazing among nurses is a major problem, but part of the issue may be that the nurses doing it don't recognize it as such, according to the Florida Times-Union. In many hospitals, nurses have engaged in such behavior without repercussions for so long that they genuinely don't know that's what they're doing, Sonia Balevre of the Association for Nursing Professional Development said at the Florida-wide Quality and Safety Education for Nurses summit. In those cases, hospital officials that tell the offending nurses to stop may actually find it ends the bad behavior. Article
