Running head: HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WORKPLACE 1 HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WORKPLACE According to Bartunek (2011), existing problems between nurses, physicians and administrators hinder the ability to achieve quality care in healthcare settings. In one health care facility, of which I am familiar with, there exists relationship disparities between the nursing staff and the facility’s physicians. The physicians feel that the nursing staff are subordinates whose work is to follow their every command while the nursing staff feel that physicians are too domineering. The relationship disparities also exist due to difference in perspective between the two groups; nurses tend to look at the general well-being of a patient while the doctors focus solely on treatment and cures. This relationship disparity is not good for the facility as it can threaten patient safety and sometimes leads to low morale amongst the nursing staff.
