I am a critical care nurse. Recently, a coherence patient tried to hit me because he was angry. Family awared and thought it was ok to do so.
I filed an incident report. The physcian and our Don talked to him.
Accoding to NJ law, assaulting a healthcare worker is a felony.
I want to know can I still charge the patient for assault after he leaves the hospital ?
Is it legal to kep hia address for persecution purposes ?
Print and share with friends and family.
