A victim of bullying speaks out

first_imgA victim of bullying speaks outOn 1 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. The publication of the results of our bullying survey in the January issuesparked this letter from a reader which vividly illustrates the problemsexperienced by many OH nurses. We would welcome any responses from readers whohave had similar experiences or who would like to suggest ways in which asituation such as this reader describes might be tackled. I am a specialist nurse practitioner working in a service that covers theNHS and private contracts, providing a service for about 16,000 staff. All thenurses over the past few years have experienced verbal, public and mentalbullying in some shape or form by the director of the service who is also adoctor (Dr X). This doctor has no management or people skills. His autocratic managementstyle has led to nurses leaving – driven to despair by the constant pettybullying. Clinical departmental meetings are led by Dr X and the nurses feel afraid tospeak out for fear of being belittled. Verbal bullying manifests itself in the way Dr X treats staff at meetings.For example, one nurse had not performed a procedure correctly, so instead oftackling that person alone, a “Hitler-style” approach was adopted totell the whole team how this procedure should be done. Nurse and specialist practitioners work extremely hard: there are threenurses short of the service agreements and work has trebled in the past year – noacknowledgement has been made of this. Mental bullying manifests itself in the form of constant petty comments –not to the individual themselves, but to the nurse manager who has to relay theinformation. Why is this person wearing the wrong earrings? Why is this personlaughing? The bullying continues until the nurse breaks, either through goingoff sick or leaving. Dr X has a deep loathing of nurses in general. There is no respect orfeeling of worth for nurses in the department. Communication skills are totally lacking and information is not relayed frommeetings. We learn information about our service from outside sources. Policiesand procedures are not distributed for comments or ideas, and as most policiesare not available, if advice is sought from Dr X, he usually retracts what wassaid the next day. There would be no back-up for the nurses if any issue wentto court. Ideas and thoughts from nurses are ignored, innovation is ignored, andspecialist skills are not acknowledged, such as workplace visits to reduce thedoctor’s workload. Dr X will even belittle staff in public and at lectures, stating that ifemployees want any advice about serious problems, not to tell the nursesbecause they cannot keep confidentiality and to go straight to the doctor forhelp. As it may now be apparent, morale in the department between the nurses is atthe lowest ebb. Dr X cannot speak to staff in a decent and respectful way,lacks tact and diplomacy and angers the nurses immensely. Dr X admits to not being able to delegate tasks, but refuses to accept thathe is a control freak unable to trust anyone, unwilling to share information,scared to praise staff and with an ultimate deep loathing of nurses. Help is now being sought from a higher level and senior nurses are soon totackle the issue. If there is no resolution at this stage, then formalgrievance and bullying procedures will come into place. The organisation needs to see that on its own doorstep there is deepunhappiness and resentment among the people Dr X employs. Name and address supplied last_img read more

first_img View post tag: 45 View post tag: Graduation View post tag: Australian December 2, 2011 View post tag: Royal A diverse group of 67 Australians graduated as officers in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) at RAN College, HMAS Creswell.For the 15 women and 52 men taking part in the graduation parade, the completion of New Entry Officer Course (NEOC) 45 marked the end of 22 weeks of initial training at RAN College.The class NEOC 45 includes new officers hailing from Wollongong and Moruya on the New South Wales South Coast. Several graduates first joined Navy as sailors via the popular gap year program, before applying to become commissioned officers. One has even spent a decade working in Japan as a computer game programmer.One Midshipman, Chanelle Smith, was inspired to don the uniform and become a Maritime Warfare Officer after attending a friend’s Navy graduation parade.“Seeing the transformation of so many young people, the way in which they carried themselves and the professionalism that was displayed; words cannot describe. I applied to join immediately the next day,” Midshipman Smith said.Reviewing Officer for the parade was the Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Ray Griggs.Creswell’s Commanding Officer, Captain Brett Chandler, watched the graduates develop as naval officers over the period.“I’m very proud of what they have achieved in their time here,” CAPT Chandler said.“The graduates have faced challenges, formed bonds with their fellow students, pushed their limits, and grown as people, as well as officers.”During the five-month course the graduates have trained in areas such as leadership, seamanship, naval history, physical fitness and weapons handling.“Today is a proud moment for the graduates and their families, and I wish them the best of luck in their careers as Navy’s future leaders,” CAPT Chandler said.The new officers will now move on to the next stage of their training, specialising in fields including aviation, training, engineering, ship command, logistics, medicine and dentistry.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 02, 2011; Image: navy View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Australian Navy Holds NEOC 45 Graduation Ceremony View post tag: Ceremonycenter_img Training & Education View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval Royal Australian Navy Holds NEOC 45 Graduation Ceremony Share this article View post tag: NEOC View post tag: holdslast_img read more
