In the legendary words of the Once-ler from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax,
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
The healthcare industry needs YOU to reverse the culture of incivility. It all starts with you!
“Working in the healthcare environment is unlike any other professional situation. The medical field is stressful, fast paced, competitive, highly technical and constantly evolving. And, because human lives are at stake, those of us in healthcare shoulder a heavy responsibility.

People who feel powerless and angry are more likely to assert misguided power by abusing others. That’s one reason why many healthcare environments are plagued by hostility, gossip, bullying and unhealthy competition—leading to a widespread culture of incivility.
We believe that the “shortage” of healthcare workers may, in fact, just be a shortage of workers willing to work under these conditions—and we want to inspire you to make some changes.”
