This can be very challenging to deal with for both the nurse and family members (Copstead & Banasik, 2010). These behavioral changes should be addressed by providing a significant amount of relaxing and therapeutic activities to help cope with anxiety and tension.

An article conducted on nurses showed that workplaces that consist of incivility in healthcare result in lack of satisfaction, high turnover rates, and adverse patient outcomes (Berry, 2016). The purpose of this article is to address and research the importance of nurse incivility, such as bullying in the workplace and its impact on its turnover rates. Also, this article will further address the strategies and solutions to decrease the high turnover rates in the healthcare setting. Research suggests that as new nurses begin their socialization into the profession that they are encouraged to accept incivility as a professional norm. In one study, results showed that workplace bullying behaviors (WPB) range from 27.3% to 31% for twice-weekly incidents for nurses and 21.3% for daily WPB for novice nurses (Berry, 2012).

Ethics Violation The American Nurses Association talks of nurse advocacy in the code of ethics as important in providing quality care for patients. In the code of ethics, provision 3 of the code of ethics states, a nurse should promote, protect and advocate for the health, rights, and safety of the patient. In the scenario, the provision 3 of the ANA code of ethics is violated as the effort to advocate for the patient is blocked and thus leaving the patient suffering in the hands of the physicians (American Nurses Association, 2005). Nurses play a vital role when it comes to the care of patients which include advocating for the patients since they have the closer relationship with their patients and tend to understand the needs and cases

w beliefs and practices, nurses must understand patient’s values indicating “both a consistent heritage (traditional) and an inconsistent heritage (acculturated/modern)”(Spector, 2002, p.197). They must connect, listen, and understand that patients can have diverse beliefs regarding their health. Nurse often will find themselves in difficult situations that might disrupt their personal or professional morals. In those situations it is important for the nurse to speak out demonstrating moral courage by advocating for the patient. It will be difficult to completely comprehend some patient’s practices, but it is good to have knowledge on these topics, so they can add their cultural implications into their care plan.
These conditions contribute to the detriment of patient and nurse safety. A nurse who is faced with a high patient ratio and then made to work overtime is prone to errors which can harm themselves and their patients. A scenario that causes fragile patients in need of excellent care to suffer. Nurses are human and require conditions that will enable them to work
Neonates do experience pain and controlling that pain can have both short and long term benefits. Neonatal pain or discomfort occurs during patient care, moderate, and severe invasive procedures and nursing must understand the concept of neonatal pain in order to avoid negative influences over neonatal development, prevent damage as well as enhance quality of care (Marchant, 2014). Dr. Jean Watson 's theory of human caring/Caring Science can also be considered a philosophical and moral/ethical foundation for professional nursing and part of the central focus for nursing at the disciplinary level (Watson, 2016). Transforming Watson 's carative factors into clinical practice includes conscientiously practicing love and kindness, being authentically present, go beyond self and cultivating own spiritual practices with sensitivity to others, being present and supportive, and creating a healing environment.
