Abstract/Description: Purpose: This study was designed to examine the existing gaps and awareness among nurses regarding unprofessional conduct and its impact on job retention and satisfaction as well as devising an intervention to alleviate this behavior. Methods: A descriptive study design with a convenience sample of 51 active licensed nurses in long term care facility in North Florida was used over a period of three months using a hand delivered needs assessment survey questionnaires. Results: This study reveals that neither level of education, nor years of experience increased nurse’s confidence level to avoid workplace inactivity. The “putdown” syndrome is the most common misconduct experienced by the nurses in their workplaces, it occurs in multiples with other types of unprofessional conduct, in most cases, on hourly and daily basis. Additional findings showed that the put down syndrome were more common between certified nursing assistants and licensed nurses. Discussion: This research indicates that disruptive clinician behavior exist in the workplace and it is key in undermining the organizations mission and culture. There can be overt and direct disruptive behavior by physician and nurses that are more passive-aggressive and are directed more at peers. In addition, reports from certified nursing assistants revealed that the “putdown syndrome” continues to exist largely between certified nurse assistants and licensed nurses and is very harmful to patient care. This is strong call for another study to investigate “put down syndrome” between licensed nurses and certified nurse assistants and its impact on patient care outcome.
