has anyone ever had to call police & file charges against a patient?
if so, what support did you get from your administration? did they back you, or did they purposely obstruct your case or discouraged you from pursuing it? did your hospital use it's team of lawyers to back you up or use them to threaten you instead?
what, if any, legislation is active in your state that protects nurses from being assaulted while on duty, or in uniform?
thanks to all respondents
