Workplace civility is linked to organizational excellence and creates an environment where employees respect and value one another through cooperation, fair resolution of disputes, teamwork, and non-discriminatory behavior (Department of Veteran Affairs, 2017). Organizational leaders and managers must create an environment that is respectful and inclusive of all people (Clark, 2015; Marshall & Broome, 2017).

Work Environment Assessment

According to the Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory results, my organization is a moderately healthy environment. Why my workplace is civil? The VA understands that civility is a significant determinant not only to employee outcomes ( job satisfaction, stress levels) but also to higher level outcomes directly connected to the organizational mission (quality of patient care, operational costs, ability to retain quality workforce ). The organization continues to create a healthy work environment and measures civility annually through the All Employee Survey (Department of Veteran Affairs, 2017).

Incidence of Incivility

A physician assistant (PA) ordered Versed, and  I was not comfortable giving this medication to my patient. I asked him to explain his rationale for ordering the medication because I knew this drug was not part of the ACLS chest pain protocol and although in pain morphine was the better drug of choice.  The PA pretending to understood my concern and contacted his pharmacist friend who works in our department, but was off duty. The pharmacist became enraged and began to text me with vulgar language and statements, feeling under attack, I  stood up for myself told the pharmacist and the PA I would not be bullied into unsafe practice, and it was my responsibility to advocate appropriately. I shared the messages with the supervising physician, management, and union representative. The pharmacist and PA both issued a formal apology and suspended for two weeks.
