Dark Side of Nursing

Nurses have one of the most dangerous jobs around. From assaults to verbal abuse, nurses need to be constantly on guard. www.toprntobsn.com has created an infographic entitled “The Dark Side of Nursing”, detailing just how dangerous being a nurse can be, along with how nurses can protect themselves.
Being aware is the key to remaining safe for nurses. They should always watch for impending violence, such as threatening body language or signs of drug or alcohol use. It’s important to stay calm and remain in control. Evaluate every situation for potential violence, and don’t isolate yourself or get into an area without a clear exit.
Hospitals should also do their best to protect employees by providing panic buttons in every room, call code pseudonyms, an enclosed nursing station, well-lit areas, security signs, and locked entries.
