NIOSH-Funded Study Examines Violence Among Emergency Workers

NIOSH reports that 90 percent of emergency department nurses interviewed reported being verbally abused at least once in the past year and nearly one-third had been assaulted, but the majority, 72 percent, never reported the incidents.

These findings are part of a new report by several outside researchers in a study funded by NIOSH. The study examined workplace violence prevention training, incidents of violent events, and subsequent injury among emergency department employees of acute-care hospitals in New Jersey.

The full report, including recommendations for hospitals to improve employee training, can be accessed at www.state.nj.us/health/eoh/survweb/documents/njhospsec_rpt.pdf.
