Abstract

This study aimed to clarify the influences of workplace bullying among nurses on their traumatic stress responses. An anonymous, self-administered questionnaire survey was conducted, and replies from a total of 1,890 nurses working in 11 hospitals were analyzed. Logistic regression with the traumatic stress response as a dependent variable revealed that those with experience of being bullied, such as not being provided with necessary information, being excluded from a group of colleagues, being repeatedly reminded of past mistakes and errors, being ignored, being monitored, or being overworked, showed a markedly high traumatic stress response rate. The results of this study suggest the necessity of improving working environments and preventing workplace bullying to promote mental health care for nurses.
