Quiz: How to Beat Practice Bullies

A significant portion of human and veterinary healthcare professionals experience bullying in the workplace. Approximately 41.2% of human healthcare professionals are affected1 and approximately 16% of New Zealand veterinarians may be chronically bullied, experiencing at least two forms of bullying weekly for half a year.2

Bad behavior affects patient care. A shocking simulated NICU study showed that even mild rudeness from an outsider could increase diagnostic and procedural errors by decreasing the healthcare team’s ability to seek help and share information.3 Thus, it is unsurprising that healthcare professionals associate bullying with increased adverse events and patient mortality.4,5

Test your ability to recognize bullying before it harms other veterinary professionals or patients.
