This happens quite frequently in ERs in the U.S.; and, hospital units. I'm a retired nurse. I've had my jaw dislocated; gotten bit to where I was bleeding; punched, pinched; and slapped. Nurses have to "put up with it" all the time. Patients with Dementia and Alzheimer's are the most dangerous. They don't comprehend what's going on; then become violent. I've had co-workers get their arms broken.Nurses need better pay for what they deal with daily.

why is it that healthcare costs more then ever but nurses and such are way underpaid? I can't imagine where the money is going???? maybe like CEOs and whatnot. people who all they do is lay people off and cut costs and in return get paid millions of dollars get raises and bonuses and basically do nothing besides cut costs and get paid more. πŸ€”

Maybe just maybe nurses will get the pay and respect that they deserve. I have loved my profession for nearly 40 years. Not so much anymore. Happy to have a desk job now, away from the chaos of the ED.
