How Can We Prevent Hospital Shootings?

It’s every nurse or healthcare worker’s nightmare: shooting in the hospital. Sadly, violence against healthcare workers has been on the rise. You might feel helpless, if you do, that’s normal. Just know- you’re not alone, gun violence in hospitals can be prevented.

In this episode, Nurse Alice talks about, 

  • Ways nurses can protect themselves from gun violence and workplace violence
  • How to identify potentially violent patients
  • How to prevent hospital shootings
  • What hospitals are doing to protect healthcare workers from violence
  • Legislation that is planned to prevent gun violence

Alice addresses the emerging gun violence in society today and the recent killing of four people at the Tulsa Medical Center by a disgruntled patient, who was also killed.
