If you go to http://www.ena.org/search/
and use the search term
"violence", 54 web-available documents will be returned using that word.
These include "official" position statements, governmental decrees such as
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, influence of
overcrowding, etc. You could also try searching OSHA's site, the Journal of
Emergency Nursing site
You could also bring your query to "Em-Nsg-L: The Emergency Nursing List"
which has well over 800 members in 21 countries, many of whom have dealt
with this problem. To join, send a message to LISTSERV@...

Best of luck in your research and in controlling any problems in your A&E!

It's not "ER Nursing" . . .
It's not a place . . .
It's a mission
Wherever it's needed.
Whenever it's needed.
Whoever needs it.
Emergency Nursing is different from any other kind of nursing.
In fact, it is every other kind of nursing,
confronting infinite variety and infinite danger immediately
with infinite ability and finite resources.
