Did you Know?

Lets talk about violence,assaults and homicide.
When we think of violence,violent attacks ,or homicide, most people imagine street crime ,a convenience store robbery gone very badly,or perhaps a lethal home invasion.
My topic is different : violence perpetrated against healthcare workers-nurses,physicians,emergency techs, medical aides,and so forth-at the hands of patients, patients family members and patient acquaintances.
80% of healthcare workers get assaulted   YES I wrote 80% of healthcare workers get assaulted!!!!
The healthcare employee population is,literally and figuratively under attack,and the victims are losing their sense of freedom,safety, emotional stability and in some cases their lives.

We need to continue to let the public know how much violence there is!
