This is a medical facility NOT Death Row Records or some flight club. However, patients are being admitted to our nursing units with the energy as Suge Knight and Mike Tyson in his prime. This may sound a little extreme but its not and there are alarming facts to back it up. Violence against nurses is becoming a national epidemic and one that cannot and will not be tolerated. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 75 percent of nearly 25,000 workplace assaults reported annually occurred in health care and social service settings and workers in health care settings are four times more likely to be victimized than workers in private industry.
