Most ER nurses skip formal assault reports: survey
Modern Healthcare

Despite relatively high rates of workplace violence, most emergency-room nurses didn’t formally report on-the-job assaults against them, according to a survey of members of the Emergency Nurses Association. About 66% of nurses in the survey said they didn’t file formal reports about physical violence against them, though the association’s study noted that the same percentage did mention the assaults to hospital security guards or their immediate supervisor.
