Health care workplace violence efforts should be improved
from Healthcare Dive
Health care workers are victims of a high incidence of violence in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, VA facilities and other health care centers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care workers experience the most nonfatal workplace violence compared to other sectors, accounting for close to 70 percent of all nonfatal workplace assaults causing missed work days in the U.S. In addition, a 2014 survey of 762 registered nurses found more than 75 percent experienced violence, with emergency nurses reporting a significantly greater number of incidents.
