Abstract A literature review was conducted to answer the following evidence-based research question "What are the effects of horizontal violence in the workplace on nurses and patient care?" The review includes a systematic review, two qualitative reviews, one quantitative review and a mixed method review that will aid in answering the research question while focusing on the effects of horizontal violence on nurses and what interventions could possibly be used to prevent this type of violence in the workplace. These studies were retrieved through various electronic databases in which will be discussed in the remainder of the literature review. The literature that was used were all published within the last five years with four of them being published in the United States and one from the United Kingdom. Information regarding the reports such as research limitations, level of evidence, research method and design are included in the discussion and implications of nursing.

(Jacqueline Sheehan) Because Sheehan is a psychologist she was able to use her knowledge and work in people like Melissa. Melissa began to take Cooper on walks when Rocky needed her to.
