(Huston, 2017, pg151) Horizontal violence are behaviors that hinder nursing job satisfaction, impact job performance and put a lot of pressure on the nurse. According to the Joint Commission “intimidating and disruptive behaviors” can facilitate medication errors, lower patient satisfaction and lead to adverse patient outcomes.

Victims need proper support and the offenders need to have discipline in order to correct this issue.
(2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected. In addition, the same study reveals that nurses and other health care providers in the intensive care unit are more likely to leave their job due to moral distress as compared to other hospital settings. Research has shown that moral distress and ethical issues can have profound impacts on health care providers, such as patient safety, workplace dissatisfaction, and emotional suffering. As a practicing ICU nurse, I also have my fair share of moral distress, and I often feel powerless or even angry when I am unable to practice according to my ethical standards. Moral distress was the last subject on my mind when I took the position in the intensive
The assumption is that only nurses who work in the hospital setting are subjected to nurse fatigue, but this problem affects in the rehabilitation facilities, home care nursing, specialized clinics.

Patients understanding about cancer means "death" and most likely need to hide the diagnoses to them.. "It 's very unpleasant to tell the patient that they have a terminal illness.

Staffing is an issue of both professional and personal concern for the nurses as it decreases the quality of care they could provide for their patients and it causes them to be overwhelmed with their workload. Patient’s life can also be placed into risk and danger if this issue won’t be resolved. Inappropriate staffing level not only threaten patient health and safety lead to the need for a more complex care and increase the demand for unnecessary use of resources like manpower, time and money; it can also increase the stress of the care providers.

In the article, Evidence-based approaches to breaking down language barriers, Squires discusses the importance of equipping healthcare team with appropriate interpretation resources to improve patient care. Since, people migrate to the US from all around the world, this brings in confusion for many, especially the elderly immigrants, when communicating in a healthcare setting. Breaking this barrier is especially important in nursing since nurses are the ones communicating with patients regarding medications, adherence to diet, and even discharge information.
Medication errors are one of the most serious issues dealt with in the healthcare setting. It accounts for many complications that could potentially harm the patient and the administrator themselves. Medication errors may be preventable, and although the healthcare professional is responsible for the patient’s medication while in their care, inappropriate medication use may still occur. Human error is a huge contributor for the flaw in the administration of medication, which could be influenced by many factors. A simple way to address the problem of the misuse of medication is to look at the contributing factors that lead to the error and utilise the “five rights” for safe practice.

For example, when a patient is frustrated and acting out verbally to the staff, it would be necessary to address exactly why these feelings are present. When the nurse spread the word that the patient was more difficult to work with, the oncoming nurse was immediately wary of that patient. While not all nurses will take that kind of information to heart, some will. It will impact the quality of care that the patient deserves because the nurse will more likely spend her time with her other patients, than with the difficult patients. His needs may not be fully met because the nurse wanted to avoid any difficult
