MNA Lobby Day!

A Nurse is NOT a Punching Bag

A hospital should be a haven where patients go to heal and nurses and other health care professionals provide care in a safe environment. Unfortunately, hospitals are increasingly violent workplaces, both for employees and for patients. Violence against nurses and other health care workers, which can range from verbal and emotional abuse to physical assault and homicide, is not uncommon in hospitals and other health care settings. This violence can be perpetrated by patients, families, friends, visitors, and even co-workers.
