Every day, nurses are relating on a personal level with their patients. Undoubtedly, it can be a rewarding interaction, but when patients and their visitors are unhappy, nurses bear the brunt of the anger. Sometimes, this anger even turns to violence. What administrative resources can help you protect nurses and other healthcare workers, and are these resources accessible both at big hospitals and at small clinic institutions? Are there substantive and ongoing legislative efforts, on each level of government, to protect our safety? Dr. Diana Mason, a registered nurse and editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Nursing, and Charlene Richardson, a registered nurse and an advocate for workplace safety, answer these questions and many more in their conversation with host Dr. Jennifer Shu.
