The idea of disruptive behavior within healthcare organizations correlates with the number of medication errors due to miscommunication. Most people would agree that miscommunication and disruptive behavior are highly related in any setting, but are extremely important to detect and diagnose in health care settings because of the direct results these behaviors may have on patient care and satisfaction. Understanding and being able to determine the problems between staff members in clinical settings is essential in deciding on recommendations for solving this problem.
