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.
