||Bullying, burnout and well-being among assistant nurses
||Dec. 1998, Vol.14, No.6, p.563-568. 35 ref.
||Bullying at work is studied in a representative sample of 745 Norwegian assistant nurses. While 4.8% of the assistant nurses currently experienced problems with bullying, 8.4% had former experiences as victims of bullying. Moreover, one out of five had witnessed others being bullied. The most common kinds of bullying behaviour experienced by the victims were serious slander, rumours and silent hostility. Fellow assistant nurses and nurses were seen as the offenders in most cases. None of the victims felt bullied by patients or relatives. Bullied assistant nurses had significantly higher levels of burnout, lowered job-satisfaction and lowered psychological well-being compared with their non-bullied colleagues. Topics: bullying; human relations; job dissatisfaction; neuropsychic stress; nursing personnel; overstrain; psychological effects; questionnaire survey; social aspects; stress factors.
