Where does degrading an employee fall under? I was humiliated by my supervisor who scolded me in front of hospital staff and my some of my female peers are in a way bullying me by ignoring me as a group and outcasting or excluding me. I really could care less but when nurses are reporting to me the negative comments these female physicians are saying about me, it only adds to the stress I already have from my excessive workload. I was pressured (bullied) by a peer to take an unstable patient under my care, a patient whom I have never met (therefore no doctor to patient relationship legally) which I did not feel comfortable to take so I asked written directives from our chief. My chief is also unfair in his spread of workload where some doctors are just coasting at work taking care of only 12 patients in one unit and I am given two units in different buildings, including coverage of other units for other doctors who are off or are on leave. It is quite a long walk between my 2 buildings so it is exhausting to be walking back and forth when I get paged from one building to another and I can not get my notes or review my labs or other tests on time. I feel this is not safe for the patients but if I complain,I feel my boss and peers would resent me even more.
