Bullying In The C-Suite: A Nurse Leader Perspective, 2021 University of San Francisco
Bullying In The C-Suite: A Nurse Leader Perspective, Kimberly Ann Colonnelli
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects
An estimated 35% of American workers have experienced bullying, and in 80% of those situations, the perpetrator was a supervisor or boss. 1 However, the reality is that bullying can come from anyone in the workplace, including subordinates. Victims are generally well liked and good performers, making them feel like threats to a bully’s power base. Bullying, unlike harassment, is not a legally defined behavior, so no laws currently exist to punish it. Victims are, therefore, at the mercy of their bosses, supervisors, co-workers, and human resource departments for protection or relief. Bullying is not a singular event, but ...

A New Approach To Bedside Nursing: Bedside Reporting, 2021 Murray State University
A New Approach To Bedside Nursing: Bedside Reporting, Regan Hancock, Samantha Mcclure
End of shift reporting in our chosen hospital has shown a level of unorganization and ineffectiveness. Currently, the practice is that the nursing staff are seated in or around the desk allowing for interruptions from phones, families, and other staff members. Interruptions like these allow for misinterpretation and communication errors which could lead to a decrease in a patient’s outcome and safety. Through utilization of three different theoretical frameworks along with evaluation of several meta-analysis and research based articles, we evaluated the effectiveness of bedside handoff reporting. The evidence is in favor of bedside handoff reporting. Therefore, the hospital ...

Intent To Stay, Moral Distress, And Nurse Practice Environment Among Long-Term Care Nurses, 2021 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Intent To Stay, Moral Distress, And Nurse Practice Environment Among Long-Term Care Nurses, Amil Tan
Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Background: Many long-term care facilities in the United States face significant problems with nurse retention and turnover. These challenges are attributed at least in part to moral distress and a negative nurse practice environment. Licensed nurses working in long-term care facilities experience ethical challenges such as lack of resources, use of restraints, end-of-life issues, and caring for residents with dementia that, if not resolved, can lead to moral distress- especially if left unresolved. Long-term care administrators and nurse managers increasingly strive to improve leadership support for long-term care staff that will positively affect the nurse practice environment.
Aim/Purpose: The ...

There are multiple layers of oversight across the healthcare delivery system. Measuring acute hospital readmissions has been identified as an important outcome measure of quality care. Our patients are one of the major stakeholders in the healthcare system. One role of a clinical nurse leader is to integrate evidence-based leadership practices that identify and assess outcomes, mitigate risk, enhance health promotion, deliver highly effective patient care, and ensure transparent relationships with stakeholders. Rationales for examining and re-designing the readmission analysis workflow based on the customer’s experience are discussed in this paper. The global aim of the project is ...
The Art Of Emotional Intelligence: Decreasing Lateral Violence Among Nurses, 2021 Augsburg University
The Art Of Emotional Intelligence: Decreasing Lateral Violence Among Nurses, Cheryl Ann Brugger
Theses and Graduate Projects
Nurses work in stressful and complex work environments and, unfortunately, can be subjected to lateral violence. Lateral violence is described as repetitive actions and behaviors of verbal and emotional abuse or acts of incivility from one nurse(s) to another on equal levels of the organizational structure; the behaviors are meant to threaten, harm, or intimidate. Nurses will not stay in an environment that is negative, hostile, and demoralizing; lateral violence can decrease nursing retention rates and increase turnover and job dissatisfaction. Nurses leaving the profession contributing to shortages, poor patient outcomes, and safety concerns. Enhancing nurses’ emotional intelligence may ...

The Use Of Isbared/Ishaped And Elimination Of Reviewing Patients’ Chart Before Handoff To Decrease Incremental Overtime, 2021 The University of San Francisco
The Use Of Isbared/Ishaped And Elimination Of Reviewing Patients’ Chart Before Handoff To Decrease Incremental Overtime, Sheila Bucao
Master's Projects and Capstones
Problem: Incremental overtime was found to majorly impact the financial well-being of a stroke unit. From an allocated budget of 22 hours per pay period, the unit’s incremental overtime averaged 40 hours. The stroke unit had skilled-mix competencies, further complicating handoffs. The absence of a standard reporting method means that reviewing patients’ charts takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes, extending what should be a quick, but thorough nurse knowledge exchange.
Context: The body of evidence reviewed indicated that pertinent information to patient care is not left out or missed when a standardized tool is used during handoff. Based on ...
Peer-To-Peer Emotional Support For Second Victims Of Hospital Adverse Events, 2021 University of San Francisco
Peer-To-Peer Emotional Support For Second Victims Of Hospital Adverse Events, Jessica L. Van Leuven
Master's Projects and Capstones
Problem: Psychological impact of trauma on healthcare workers is profound, and if left unaddressed can debilitate its victims, depress morale, and undermine safety culture. When adverse events occur and focus is placed on providing care and support to patients and their families, the emotional support needs of healthcare workers must also be acknowledged.
Context: Frontline workers in the oncology unit of the medical center that is the setting for this project experience emotional distress as “second victims” of adverse patient events. Close relationships develop between providers and patients during long-term treatments. When unanticipated or adverse patient events there can ...

Altruism And Self-Concept In Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurses: Is There A Relationship With Reports Of Workplace Violence?, Minnette Markus-Rodden
Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)
Incidents of workplace violence (WPV) are pervasive in healthcare settings. WPV in the US occurs four times more frequently in the healthcare sector than in the private sector. However, the true incidence of WPV in healthcare settings is thought to be much higher secondary to significant under-reporting. The American Nurses Association (2019) reports, while one in four nurses are assaulted, only 20-60% of the incidents are reported. This extensive range is due to the lack of an accepted definition of what constitutes WPV, variable reporting mechanisms, and an overall perception by healthcare workers that WPV is “part of the job ...
