It was difficult but just when she thought she had made it…kerplunk! The year of 2014 happened…and for the first time, she experienced a big time road block. Why is there bullying in healthcare and incivility among the nation’s most caring people?
Listen in as Pat Iyer and Dana Davis chat about these points.
- Dana’s story and how she handled the bullying
- What caused that behavior or what triggered the bullying behavior
- The backlash she experienced when she spoke up

Bullying does not occur just in the playground or corporate setting. It also happens in health care where people’s lives are at stake. Bullying in health care can have serious consequences to patient care. This affects how medical errors are made and how LNCs analyze the liability.
I have a 60-minute training with Beth Boynton RN and Alan Rosenstein MD. They share their expertise about this potentially very dangerous behavior pattern.
