Medscape’s One Question Blog posted a new question the other day: have you, as a nurse, been assaulted and/or threatened by a family member either physically or mentally? If so, please share your experiences. How did you handle the situation immediately? Lock the workplace? How did those in charge in your setting handle your situation?
They’re soliciting responses, and so far, the ones posted have been pretty interesting. You can check out what colleagues have to say, and/or add your own response here. Site registration is required to participate, but is free of charge.
