According to a study conducted in 2004, 72% of nurses do not feel safe from assault at work (International Council of Nurses). The same study found that female workers are most likely to suffer from workplace violence.
We know the number of workplace violence incidents – the majority of which go unreported – are growing. However, there is a lack of current data to communicate the shocking number of incidents experienced in the workplace by all workers in the healthcare sector.
We have developed an anonymous survey to collect your personal experiences with workplace violence so that we can better understand how widespread this epidemic truly is.
Thank you for filling out the survey and helping break the silence!
