- 5Quote from AggieNurse2BI spend more time at the desk than most nurses, so I'm the first person that gets their face blown off.

What if you needed to use it and there was a serious injury/ fatality? What if innocent person was harmed. Potential life altering scenarios for yourself and your employer.

More guns in Georgia than Canada, and Georgia has more gun violence. So obviously more guns is working, or, wait...The answer to gun violence is not more guns.
- 0Jan 30, '13 by rentalnursewe have a new code at our hosp "silver" for shooter. it paged its duck and cover or barricade. Our rent a cops dont carry and wont intervene in a code green. all we are equipped is CPI non violent intervention training, scary for us nurses. the hosp i switched to is more of a community hosp and no psych unit so not as many crazies coming in.
