What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Division 2 Nurse

by Denise
(Pascoe Vale, Victoria, Australia)

Have been employed in same Hospital for 30 years, in heavy, demanding Medical Ward. Am also an below knee Amputee. 3 years ago this manager was found somewhere in NZ. When she started in ward, she came armed with a "Hit List", with mainly long term Nurses she intended to get rid off. She has managed this list, except for me. Over last 3 years my work situation has consisted of continual monitoring, complete lack of support, harrassment, being expected to work up to 7 days straight, rudeness non stop from her associate nurses.

It is not that easy to just leave, because am not prepared to spend last few years before retirement in Nursing Homes. Have taken this person to HREOC, Fair Work Australia and Federal Court (Which she did not attend). Despite warnings from Fair Work, her behaviour has shown absolutley no improvement. She has been caught lieing at meetings. Eye contact is unheard off. She NEVER goes into patients rooms for anything.
