Question of the WeekPublished 5/20/2008

According to a recent article by Globe and Mail regarding an assault at a Canadian hospital, an associate director of the Canadian Nurses Association believes that nurses are at a high risk of violence in the work place.

Lisa Little stated, "Nurses are at higher risk than policemen and prison guards in terms of violence in the workplace. They are caught in the fire of trying to deal with aggressive or frustrated clients. There is a misperception that it’s part of your job." As a result of a rise in patient crimes on health care workers, nurses have described violence and abuse in hospitals as being endemic.

Do you feel that the nursing profession is a dangerous field? Have you ever experienced a situation of violence with a patient or their family member? Should there be more specific laws protecting nurses in regards to patients and requiring facilities to report those incidents?
