Epidemic of Workplace Violence in Healthcare
April 9, 2019
On its “All Things Considered” program and in its “Shots” blog, NPR reported that healthcare workers have been frequent targets of violence against them from patients and their families. OSHA statistics note that incidents of serious workplace violence are four times more common in health care than in other work environments. This is not new information, but really old, info well-known internally that is being made public.
