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. News station WAFB-9 reported that in April 2019, Lynne Truxillo, a Nurse on a behavioral health unit at Baton Rouge General Medical Center, was killed by a patient. According to a police report, the patient violently grabbed Nurse Truxillo by the back of the neck and “violently pushed (her) head downward striking it on a desk.”
