Do my stories about other nurses and aides depict bullying? I think so.
Management is aware of the acts and ensures that they will continue by always siding with the other person. Perhaps they view me as the bully- I by telling others what to do, I am being mean to them, upsetting them. Never mind that they upset me, they are not performing their jobs, and I am the one in charge. When someone complains about me, it doesn't seem relevant that they person readily admits to not performing a job duty; rather, the focus is on how I upset so-and-so.
Management is in position to intervene and stop the bullying in the workplace. Where I work, management is week. The supervisors bully personally and the reinforce the bullying of nurses and aides. I am the outsider and they are creating a hostile and intimidating work environment to make me leave.
