Nurse shot in leg !

   A nurse shot in the leg today by a hyperactive patient that was able to get a policeman's gun.
This happened at West Marion Hospital Ocala Florida.  Today 6/17/17.   "REALLY"
There were no further details on this incident as of yet.

I really don't know what to think! There are so many question and no answers. Can anyone respond on why and how this is happening?
Have we as healthcare workers allowed all this to happen? Do we think it really is part of the job to be assaulted?
Time to stand up and make all sorts of noise, This is not right, we need protection, we need to work together and stop this violence.
Prayers to this nurse,her family,friends and colleagues.
