Healthcare employers must do more to protect staff from workplace violence

from The Boston Globe

Nurses should not have to suffer broken bones and concussions to spur action against workplace violence. Unfortunately, at Arbour-HRI psychiatric hospital in Brookline, it took that level of violence for the federal government to investigate and levy a fine ("OSHA cites Brookline psychiatric hospital," Metro, Feb. 9). Arbour-HRI failed to protect employees from aggressive patients, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, leading to nurses and mental health workers being punched, hit, scratched, bitten and hit with objects, including a wooden dresser drawer. It does not have to be this way. more
