Abstract

TOPIC:

Horizontal violence among nurses.

PURPOSE:

To see if horizontal violence in the workplace exists in nursing. If it does, what is its relationship to patient care?

SOURCES OF INFORMATION:

This literature review was conducted using research articles published in 2003 and 2004. The articles were searched for in the electronic database, CINAHL. Both Ovid and EBSCO vendors were used.

CONCLUSIONS:

It is clear that horizontal violence exists in nursing today. It affects nursing in all areas. When tension is elevated in patient care areas, nursing staff are not likely to perform at their best and the result is often poor patient care.
