In a Microsoft Word document of 4-5 pages formatted in APA style, consider the following scenario:
Tina is a new RN from the Philippines, working on a medical-surgical unit. She is enthusiastic and an excellent nurse. One day, Tina administered the wrong medication to a patient and documented it in the patient’s electronic health record. The error was discovered by George, a nurse on the night shift, who completed an incident report. The next morning, Tina was called into the nurse leader and manager’s office and reprimanded for the error. In the days that followed, George belittled Tina whenever he saw her. George told several nurses about Tina’s error and they began teasing her. Often, Tina would walk into the breakroom to find staff gossiping about her. Tina began feeling depressed and hated to go to work. After several months of being bullied, Tina resigned and went to work at another hospital.
