A nurse's story of health care workplace violence

“I can imagine the horror of watching a colleague being attacked. I worry about the coworker who Lynne protected that day, since being a survivor can be so bittersweet. I can feel the shock of how quickly the violence escalated, tasting the bitterness from the desperation of being so alone in the immediate first seconds of the downwardly spiraling situation.”

June Garen is a nurse and author of Hey! I Could Use a Little Help Here! My Story of Healthcare Workplace Violence.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “In memory of a nurse who died from injuries sustained during a patient assault.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/08/in-memory-of-a-nurse-who-died-from-injuries-sustained-during-a-patient-assault.html)
