Workplace Environment Assessment

Workplace Environment Assessment

Clearly, diagnosis is a critical aspect of healthcare. However, the ultimate purpose of a diagnosis is the development and application of a series of treatments or protocols. Isolated recognition of a health issue does little to resolve it.

Incivility is one or more rude, discourteous, or disrespectful actions that may or may not have a negative intent behind them. Such acts of aggression be it verbal or physical are completely unacceptable, whether delivered by patients or colleagues. These incidents not only have a serious effect on the wellbeing of the nurse in question but also their ability to care for their patients (ANA, 2019). The results from the Clark Healthy Workplace inventory stated that my company was much inspired and promoted a more civil workplace. This was the result of ensuring that strategies were put aside to help the company in improving and increasing its productivity. Workplace Environment Assessment

Based on the results, how civil is your workplace?

My workplace is civil. This is because, as an organization, every member is respecting one another, and in a harmonious relationship, each member is doing their tasks and collaborates in working. There might be small conflicts that happen from time to time, but they are resolved professionally. So it wouldn’t affect the quality of work or in the service that is provided to customers. Another way into which my workplace is civil is due to its ethics, where each member of the company maintains or holds. Even though the employees may not always know the culture of every co-worker, motivating them to behave, civil helps to guarantee a peaceable work experience. Civil behavior such as providing credit where it is due, refraining from gossiping about co-workers and welcoming the newcomers to an organization department should be encouraged. It also entails witnessing civil action on the part of supervisors and co-workers helps encourage other workers to treat each other well. The workplace is civil because of its maintenance of the quality of life. Witnessing civil behavior is a primary factor in the quality of life in any workplace. Higher quality of life makes workers more relaxed and comfortable to be able to offer quality service to clients (Marshall & Broome, 2017) Workplace Environment Assessment
