Juice Inc. Aims to Provide the Tools to End Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility

GUELPH, Ontario — March 4, 2011 — Statistics demonstrate that 60 percent of new nursing grads leave their first position within six months because of abuse from a co-worker. In partnership with registered nurse Kathleen Bartholomew, Juice Inc. addresses the problem of nurse-to-nurse hostility and aims to provide the tools to end it.

In a highly engaging two-part DVD series, Juice offers a comprehensive and compassionate look at the impact and solutions for nurse-to-nurse hostility. The two-part DVD series is an alternative to in-person training sessions, which can often times be costly. In DVD format the sessions can be offered to staff as needed and when it’s most convenient.

In “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Raising Awareness” Brady Wilson, co-founder of Juice, sets the stage with how to create and sustain a healthy work environment. Bartholomew discusses what nurse-to-nurse hostility looks like and shares stories from the front line. Bartholomew explains why healthcare workers experience uncaring behavior from their peers, and how to build a culture of healthy relationships.

In “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Powerful Conversations” Wilson goes more in depth to demonstrate and teach an effective model to engage in more powerful, productive conversations. Wilson and Bartholomew actively model eight different scenarios with opportunities to practice using the powerful conversation methodology.

Wilson is an author and expert on how conversation affects organizational energy to create dynamic results. Bartholomew is the author of “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat Their Young and Each Other” and was named one of the top 20 people who made healthcare better for 2010 by HealthLeaders Media.

“Statistics show that 25 percent of nurses quit the profession within the first two years,” said Bartholomew. “We want healthcare professionals to stop turning a blind eye, acknowledge the problem, manage it head on and empower individuals to have powerful, positive conversations that will create a healthy culture and environment.”

While nursing is used as an example in the presentation, the material is clearly applicable to all disciplines within the healthcare profession. Administrators, medical and leadership staff can take advantage of the content.
