    Some states passed a law making assaulting an ER nurse the same felony as assaulting a cop.

    The Ohio governor recently signed a bill that increases the penalty for assaulting nurses and other health care professionals. Specifically, House Bill 62:
    • Increases the penalty for assault to a fifth-degree felony when the offender has previously been convicted of an assault against health care workers.
    • Authorizes a $5,000 fine for assault against health care workers.
    • Authorizes hospitals to post warning signs indicating that abuse or assault of hospital staff will not be tolerated and could result in a felony conviction.

    Some states passed a law making assaulting an ER nurse the same felony as assaulting a cop.
    New Jersey has a wide encompassing law that allows for prosecution of persons assaulting employees in various professions, (law enforcement, healthcare (and not just ER RNs), deliverymen/drivers, PSEG/Comcast etc - anybody in the provision of their job responsibilities).

    To OP - Good for you for filing charges and doing some investigative work to stop that guy from his wrongdoings.
