It is not anisolated issues.
Solutions are there itself. Each employees should know thepolicies of their organization on bullying. Management has to give orientationregarding bullying when they are hired. “The problem of bullying cannot bereversed if the focus is only on nurse. The healthcare industry needs to berestructured to solve the problem” (Granstra, K.
(2015). All nurses shouldtreated equally and respectfully. Nurse educators or clinical resources leadershas a major role on this. Frequent conversation with staffs help them toidentify the signs of bullying.
Reassure them and give all the support. In somefacilities some departments has always horizontal violence. Give specialattention on that units and staffs, if the health care providers feelingisolated offer them to psychological support and counselling. Mentors has avital role on prevent bullying. Always mentorship is not a positive experienceto nurses. I think horizontal violence is starting from them.
Their feedback isnot always positive. So the managers should knows who is capable for handing mentoringin a positive way. A good mentor can create positive feelings on new employees.According to Becher and Visovsky (2012, p.
211), “Leaders who demonstrate trustingbehaviors allow staff to feel supported”. In addition, “providing ampleopportunities for education and professional development is important toprevent eliminate horizontal violence in the workplace”. Some other studiesshows most nurses would like to avoid workplace bullying. They give suggestionthat, the organization can arrange culture awareness or educational programs tosupport staff, and give information about the consequences of HV.
“Nurse Leadersare in a unique position to prevent and eliminate HV by providing resources interms of support and education”. (Becher & Visovsky, 2012). Increase thenumber of staffs helps to reduce the stress- horizontal violence. If any HVhappened in the facility everyone should responsible to solve that problem. Thiswill help everybody to avoid and create HV. As per ONA better communicationamong nurses may resolve the problem “as much as we working together andtalking about the issue, is a sign of progress (ONA, May 2015).
