Breaking Point: Violence Against Long-Term Care Staff
Direct resident care in long-term care facilities is carried out predominantly by personal support workers and registered practical nurses, the majority of whom are women. They experience physical, verbal, and sexual violence from residents on a regular basis. To explore this widespread problem, fifty-six staff in seven communities in Ontario, Canada, were consulted. They identified such immediate causes of violence as resident fear, confusion, and agitation and such underlying causes as task-driven organization of work, understaffing, inappropriate resident placement, and inadequate time for relational...
Workplace bullying among healthcare professionals in Sweden: a descriptive study
Workplace bullying is a taboo event which occurs worldwide, although the prevalence varies significantly between and within countries. Nurses have been regarded an occupational risk group for bullying at the work place. Bullying in health and social care contexts is sometimes reported as frequent and, other times, as not occurring, which sparked our interest in mapping the occurrence of bullying in the health and social care system in Sweden. Thus, the purpose of the study was to examine the prevalence of bullying, and to discuss cultural traditions and environmental factors that affect bullying...

Un exemple documente l'utilisation du modèle...
When antecedent becomes consequent: An examination of the temporal order of job dissatisfaction and verbal aggression exposure in a longitudinal study
Past research has traditionally examined stressors as predictors and strains as outcomes. However, some recent research has found evidence of reverse causality between various stressors and strains, demonstrating that the relationship between these types of variables may extend beyond the traditional stressor-strain framework. The current study builds upon this past research by examining the temporal direction of the relationship between verbal aggression exposure and job satisfaction. Specifically, through the lens of emotional contagion theory, we suggest that low levels of job satisfaction in...

Determinants of Workplace Injuries and Violence Among Newly Licensed RNs
Workplace injuries, such as musculoskeletal injuries, needlestick injuries, and emotional and physical violence, remain an issue in U.S. hospitals. To develop meaningful safety programs, it is important to identify workplace factors that contribute to injuries. This study explored factors that affect injuries in a sample of newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) in Florida. Regressions were run on models in which the dependent variable was the degree to which the respondent had experienced needlesticks, work-related musculoskeletal injuries, cuts or lacerations, contusions, verbal violence, physical...
Organizational Determinants of Workplace Violence Against Hospital Workers
Objective: To identify organizational factors contributing to workplace violence in hospitals.

La violence en milieu de travail
La violence en milieu de travail peut prendre différentes formes (physique, sexuelle, verbale, psychologique). Elle peut se manifester entre personnes appartenant à une même organisation (collègues, supérieurs hiérarchiques, subordonnés), ou être commise à l'endroit d'un travailleur par une personne sans lien d'emploi avec l'organisation. Au Québec, en milieu de travail, le harcèlement psychologique est un phénomène beaucoup plus fréquent que la violence physique. Les travailleurs en...

Preventing workplace violence in the health care sector
Workplace violence in our health care sector is a growing matter that we are committed to addressing. We've seen a concerning increase in the frequency and severity of incidents of workplace violence in our hospitals, mainly experienced by nurses. Nurses play an integral role in providing care to patients in our hospitals and, because of their level of interaction with patients, they are the primary victims of workplace violence. That is unacceptable. Every worker in Ontario should expect a safe and healthy workplace. Source: https://www.ontario.ca/page/preventing-workplace-violence-health...
