|Abstract:||Workplace violence is a rising concern and a major threat to professionals in health care system. A predictive cross-sectional study was conducted in three referral hospitals with 190 nursing staffs through simple random sampling. The aim of the study was to investigate on the prevalence, impact and factors influencing workplace violence against nurses working in Bhutan. Data were collected using sets of self-reported questionnaires consisting of workplace violence survey, Short Version of Nursing Professional Competency Scale, Practice Work Environment –Nursing Work Index Scale, Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire short scale, Autonomy and Control scale and Workload Perception Questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, chi-square and binary logistic regression were used for data analysis.
Findings revealed that prevalence of workplace violence against nurses was 56.84%. Verbal violence was the most common form of workplace violence at 45.26 %. The result also found that work unit (OR: 4.625, 95%Cl: 0.8454, 25.365) and workload perception (OR: 1.756, 95%Cl: 1.077, 2.862) significantly predicted workplace violence. Nurse administrators and concerned policy makers can use the findings of present research in order to come up with solutions to minimize workplace violence in a timely fashion.|
