Workplace bullying

Workplace bullying and violence has continued to be a topic of discussion in everyday life. This is sustained and persistent mistreatment at the workplace from other employees. As a healthcare worker, I have witnessed bullying and violence in several ways. I remember when I joined the team from where I am currently working, there was a female nurse who did not like me. She started resenting against me, telling lies about my life and how I conduct myself. She always wanted to be the center of attention and was not happy when she saw I was relating well with others, particularly those who were in the management team. She developed insignificant grudges and would always want to pull every other person into it. She used to backstab me, causing conflicts and spreading lies, making me lose several friends in the process.

There was a day, and we were both on a night shift. I had stepped in for my friend, who was out of town. She kept not talking to me all the time until there was a patient who needed critical attention, and she could not manage. I stepped in, helped her deal with the issue, and ensure the patient received quality care. She changed her perception of me, started respecting my space, and stopped spreading lies. We were summoned by the Human Resource Manager, questioned our grudge. I told him that I did not know where the issue had arisen from and told the nurse that I had no problem with her perception of attention but should sojourn spreading lies and rumors.  

Workplaces should come up with strategies that would ensure that such behavior is not tolerated at any cost. Helping workers who have suffered prejudice and violence at workplace while ensuring that those who are responsible face the consequences would be imperative in increasing cohesion at workplace.
