Format: Paperback
I've been researching female bullying in the workplace, and sadly, female bullying appears most in female-dominated professions such as nursing. I used to be a paralegal, and the abuse among the staff (which is nearly all female) was stunning. However, nurse-to-nurse hostility is, hands down, a more serious issue because it can undermine patient safety. I actually read a story in which a nurse accidentally administered too much morphine to a patient because she was rattled after being bullied by another nurse. The patient ended up in ICU. Dellasega's book is a much needed discussion on the topic. However, it's rather limited in scope, especially given that more in-depth information is available. Kathleen Bartholomew's book, Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat Their Young and Each Other, is simply the most comprehensive book on female aggression (and oppression) that I've ever read. Her ideas are so well researched and explored, they can be applied to female oppression in general. She also offers terrific solutions for ending the aggression. Unfortunately, the book is rather pricey. I did an inter-library loan from a local university, and it was well worth the wait. It's also a very short, well-structured book, making it a fast, but important, read. I can't recommend it enough.

When Nurses Hurt Nurses by Cheryl Dellasega describes accurately the issues facing nurses on all levels. The horizontal and vertical hurt of peers that happen daily. It also provides suggestions for change. Every nurse on all levels ought to read this book! This book addresses the issues and offer hope for change and improvement in the work environment.

Being a nurse I thought this book would be helpful in understanding the behavior of nurses. The book was helpful in identifying these behaviors. The writing format with all the references made it cumbersome like I was reading a term paper. I did not get much out of the self help sections at the end of the chapters.

I am a working nurse with 35 years on experience and can relate to the "bullying" YES BULLYING that goes on in the nursing profession. A must read for fellow nurses who have come up against Nurse Ratchet...or her evil sister.
