Violence Has No Place in the Workplace

 In Nurses Weekly

Patt Moon-Updike was only three days into her position as a psychiatric nurse when a young patient with a history of aggression kicked her in the throat, collapsing her trachea. “All I remember is sitting in a chair, not being able to breathe, holding on to my trachea for dear life. I just knew if I let go, I would die right there in that hallway,” she said. The Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Services Workers Act would help protect nurses like you and other health care workers.
