Impacts Of Workplace Violence On Clinical Staff


Workplace violence against nurses is a major challenge for healthcare leaders. Common types of violence such as physical harm, sexual abuse, aggression, mobbing and bullying can occur from patients, family and co-workers.

For this discussion, you will use information from your assigned readings, the self-paced tutorial and the literature to discuss the following in a discussion board post.

  • What impact does workplace violence have on nurses, other clinical staff and the organization as a whole? Be specific and provide rationale.
  • How is workplace violence addressed in your organization, i.e. policies, protocols, training. Be specific.  Is it sufficient?  What else could be done?
  • What are the legal and ethical implications for the nurse leader if workplace violence occurs on their unit(s)?

Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.


  • Initial Post: Minimum of two (2) total references: one (1) from required course materials and one (1) from peer-reviewed references.

Words Limits

  • Initial Post: Minimum 200 words excluding references (approximately one (1) page)
