The Lancet Examines Violence Against Health Care Workers
The Lancet: Tackling violence against health care workers
“…Physical violence against nurses and other medical workers has become an endemic problem in health care. In addition, nonphysical assaults, such as bullying and sexual harassment, are also common. Although some countries are beginning to address the problem, much remains to be done to encourage reporting of incidents and to prevent them from happening in the first place…” (Nelson, 4/16).
