Sacramento Business Journal

A supplemental insurance program at Dignity Health will pay up to $200,000 in benefits if registered nurses are severely injured or killed in workplace assaults or injuries.

The landmark program,reached during contract negotiations last year between Dignity Health and the California Nurses Association, is one step toward addressing the problem, the union says. A bill to strengthen violence prevention in all California hospitals is moving through the state Legislature.
