A Healthy Work Environment

In the course of the nursing career, nurses face the risk of repetitive injuries from their work when administering drugs, handling patients and other responsibilities. Stress injuries, burnout and workplace violence has become a common cause of injuries for nurses. As such, nurses’ safety is of concern as it limits the ability of nurses to effectively deliver care. Moreover, the role of a nurse requires that they are of proper mental and physical health (Whitehead et al., 2015). The risk of violence and other problems reduces the ability of a nurse to effectively deliver care to patient hence affect patient safety and outcomes.

In case a hostile coworker is affecting with the ability of a nurse to effectively deliver care, he/she should communicate with the appropriate people. First, the nurse should speak with the hostile co-worker and explain that they are getting disturbed. If this does not work, then the nurse should talk to the supervisor and explain his predicament.

Substances abuse by nurses is a serious concern as it affects their ability to deliver safe and competent care. Assisting a nurse who is suspected misuse substances is necessary to ensure negative effects are minimized. One can help the nurse by reporting and ensuring they access impaired-nurse programs that states run to ensure that they are helped but do not lose their license (Whitehead, Weiss & Tappen, 2015).

The most common cause of physical injuries among LPNs is stress injuries from working in difficult environments. Overexertion where a nurse puts too much pressure on a certain part of the body, primarily joints cause injuries (Whitehead et al., 2015). As a nurse manager, several measures including ensuring proper staffing ratios, mandatory leaves, creating effective shifts and others.

Quid pro quo and hostile environment are the typical types of sexual harassment in the workplace. Quid pro quo involves a situation where sexual favors are solicited for favorable benefits at home and job continuation (Whitehead et al., 2015). Hostile environment is where an employee faces gender based sexual harassment that is offensive and abuse in nature and delays the ability of the nurse to effectively discharge duties (Whitehead et al., 2015). To deal with sexual harassment, one should confront the harasser to show that the attention is unwanted; report the incident to the supervisor; document the incident; and seek support from other people.

Neither my current rotation nor that of my friend has properly documented policies or procedure for dealing with latex injuries. For needle stick injuries, my current rotation mainly focuses on continuous staff training to prevent. In my colleague’s place, the nurses take part in selection of safety devices that are easy to use in addition to staff training. The main policy for dealing with violence in my place and that of my friend is reporting. Based on these, there is a minimum level of organizational level efforts towards dealing with these problems.

Among the concepts discussed in the ANA website that are of importance to a beginning RN include violence, incivility and bullying and environment. The work environment section introduces the RN to what they should expect in practice and help understand how to deal with it. Violence, incivility and bullying includes issues of safety that are vital to the new RN.

Based on the interview with the staff nurse, substance abuse among nurses can be addressed by personal measures. Rehabilitation of the affected and reduction of job stress would help deal with substance abuse among nurses (Strobbe & Crowley, 2017). She also reported that lack of proper coordination by nursing management was the cause of challenges with emergency preparation hence a quality manager was needed in her unit. A strong nurse management is necessary for quick decision making in high pressure situations (Deetz et al., 2020). Similarly, for a quality work life within the organization, the nurse recommended for strong leadership from the management.
