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).

For example, according to the literature review conducted by Bower et al (2011)to examine the prevalence of workplace violence in inpatients psychiatry in 10 countries found that the United Kingdom (UK) and Sweden have high level of violence incidence caused by patients toward nurses(41.73%, 42.90% respectively). In 2013 in UK , 43,699 physical assaults were annually reported against mental health nurses in psychiatry setting (Protect, 2013) .In our clinical practice, in 2016 the total number of reported incidents were 585 in which 15% assaults caused by patients toward staff. (MOH, 2016).

Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of
