Our healthcare workers in this country are assaulted on a regular basis. The people who are saving our lives and managing the sick are being hit, kicked, scratched, bitten and spat at, as well as threatened and harassed. Even worse, the violence in our hospital emergency departments is escalating. What is even more disturbing is that assault in this line of work is considered the cultural norm. The violence is thought of as “part of the job” (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S009917671300216X).
