Please read it is really important ,It could happen to you if you are not safe at work!

I am saddened by this story, a nurse goes to work and gets stabbed!!!!  How and why does this happen. If you can about healthcare workers read this story. The stabbings took place out in Calif. ( lets not forget about the nurse in Texas or anyone else that has been assaulted) . Could it have happened in your hospital? http://www.bizjournals.com/sacramento/news/2014/04/23/nurses-push-for-better-hospital-safety-after.html

This really doesn't have to happen if we worked together to keep our places safe

When a healthcare worker gets assaulted ,not much happens. They can be out of work for weeks or months and no one cares except they are short staffed........

Has this happened to your facility ?

Many police,Mayors of towns & cities are trying to work to get the violence in their cities manageable. The gangs are fighting ,people are getting hurt and dying. There is so much crime out in the street.
This is all very sad but very frightening. It scares me to think that with all the focus on the violence, that no one has thought about where the injured will be brought. The focus is get these folks off the streets. BUT if they are injured where do you think they will go? They will go to Emergency rooms. Are the emergency rooms prepared for all this? Can one security guard handle it? Do you have security in your ER? Can your security touch a patient/customer?
What are you going to do??????

I have written above healthcare violence , spoke on the radio , given lectures and have traveled in and out of our country doing the same thing. I feel like John Chapman AKA Johnny Appleseed I hope I am planting seeds to let healthcare workers know IT IS NOT PART OF THEIR JOB IT ISN'T IN YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION ( IS IT?). Every where has violence and it all seems to be growing stronger, as healthcare workers we are strapped ,we are the ones that are restrained ,we have been put in such a position that whatever the patient or customer wants they get and if they aren't satisfied the healthcare workers are to blame!
On April 11 2014 I was interviewed with Dr Charles C Anderson   on the PWR internet radio station with Lillian Cauldwell the show lasted one hour and it has a lot of information. Please listen and send feedback.
Dr Anderson and I will be interviewed again on PWR internet radio by social connections with Jeanne White. We will be discussing on solutions to our issue of healthcare violence and ways to prevent it!
I will sent you the link once it is up on the station.
Thank you all that support this
