Kadlec nurses under assault
Nurses at Kadlec shouldn’t be afraid for our lives when we go to work, yet several nurses were seriously assaulted by the very patients for whom they were caring. The two most recent preventable events in the ED and ICU have brought to light the risk that every nurse takes on a daily basis.
It’s time to take action:
1. We have taken immediate and swift action. A demand for action letter was sent to the CAO and CNO on Tuesday, Sept. 18, insisting they respond to this serious threat to nurses and staff. Read the urgent letter here.
2. Let no nurse stand alone. Many of us have been victims or have witnessed violence in our workplace. Add your voice to our Workplace Violence & Safe Staffing survey. Your personal information will be kept confidential.
