You just usually think you would see violence like that in a different setting, critical, ER, acute, ect. but violence like this is just everywhere and unfortunately going to just get worse.How tragic. My heart goes out to his family. You think these shootings may happen in an acute care setting, ER or clinic where emotions often run high but not in a long term care setting! It will be a long healing process for those involved. God bless them all.
I still think about hearing those francit people calling 911, hearing them begging for help, and it just makes chills run down your spine.
