This can be seen a lot in hospital settings where it is either nurse on nurse or even nurse against doctors. Physicians can at times regard other members of the health care team as less competent or perhaps even incompetent, weak, and vulnerable, seeing themselves as champions for their patients because they have been to medical school (Littlejohn). Many nurses have accepted that workplace violence is a part of everyday work life for them. Meaning instead of teamwork the older nurses look down on the new nurses and instead of teamwork and helping each other out, they let them fail and fall on their face. Workplace violence can cause harm that you might not even think of on a nurse in dealing with a situation that escalates very quickly leaving them afraid to go to work and leaving emotional and maybe even physical marks.
Some researchers believe that practicing the principles of health care ethics is necessary today to ensuring optimal patient safety and care.

After watching the film, I noticed that there were a lot of significant moral issues, which correlates with the nursing profession. One of it is the proper way of upholding patient 's rights when it comes to medical research. As a nursing major, I am aware that it is one of my ethical responsibilities to ensure that utmost care and treatment are provided to my patient 's advocate which means that we should stand and do something when we see malpractice being done to our patients. The doctors used Vivian as a research subject, but her nurse Susie struggles to guarantee the most beneficial care and treatment is provided for her. This film depicts the significance of advocating and fighting for patients as well as their rights in order to ensure that they are receiving optimal medical treatment.
Due to shortages, nurses often need to work long hours under demanding conditions. Nursing is not a nine to five work; when there is a patient in need of help, nurses don’t leave them there and go home; nurses work overtime almost everyday. Nurses who have not worked in the medical field before may have to work hours way beyond their comfort zone and be expected to become accustomed to the hours. Nurses working in these environments are more likely to making mistakes and medical errors. An unfavorable outcome is that patient quality can suffer, resulting in a range of preventable complications, including medication errors, emergency room overcrowding, and more frightening, increased mortality rates.
What many people working at these places have to deal with is from many perspectives unfair. Everybody should have time to rest after continuous hours of hard work. The fact that many people do not have the right to take a break from stressful conditions is very alarming. In addition to this, many workers have to deal with poor hygiene conditions. This problem affects not only the health of employees, but also the wellness of customers, and both, should be the most important elements in this kind of business.

It `s uninvited guest which always appears not in a right time. It brings a chaos in our life interfering with our daily routine and changing our plans. It makes us to forget about our friends, closed people; about everything … It subordinates us to its will. It’s a PAIN. Eula Biss, in her essay “The Pain Scale”, maintains her confusion over the pain scale concept starting from the very first number of the scale and its relevance to the pain itself.
For instance, the team leader/RN could not delegate most of the tasks to the UAP since he/she feared that the UAP could underperform or deliver poor results. In the case study, it is indicated that the UAP had just been hired recently and hence he/she lacked the full understanding on how to provide nursing care to the patients. This led to the team leader performing most of the tasks. It is indicated that the UAP was constantly asking the RN questions yet the RN may have been busy attending to other patients.

The Nursing Career and Stress and Work-Related Burnout Working in the healthcare field can be overwhelming because of the continuous exposure to stressful events such as illnesses and death.
