Healthcare organizations are said to be at more risk for bullying and harassment than other types of industries. The Joint Commission has recognized the hostile healthcare environment by creating a patient safety standard specifically geared to the “disruptive” behavior among healthcare workers. Research suggests that healthcare workers are highly likely to be harassed and bullied by physicians, patients and their families, visitors, and coworkers.

Often the perpetrator is not held accountable and the misconduct continues resulting in poor morale, turnover, absenteeism, costly lawsuits, and a decrease in the quality of patient care.
