Did you know that roughly 21% of nursing turnover can be related to incivility in the workplace? Replacing one nurse in the U.S alone can cost up to $88,000. In an ongoing ANA survey of nurses’ health and safety 25 percent to 50 percent reported experiencing various instances of incivility in their workplace. Uncivil behavior can lead to low morale, poor teamwork and distrust, decreased job performance and ultimately, diminish patient safety.
