ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the results of surveys on lateral hostility between critical care nurses. He cites that the most common form of lateral hostility experienced by such nurses was complaints shared with others without discussing them first with the people involved. He cites that other forms of lateral hostility identified by respondents include false information shared with others, sarcastic comments and elitist attitudes regarding work quality. He notes that bad-mouthing, isolating and polarizing behavior could discourage nurses in their practice.
