PA healthcare workers may get more protection from workplace violence

OSHA Healthcare Connection, March 22, 2011

A bill would start by offering training for healthcare workers, improve security measures, and establish rules to report assaults in a healthcare facility, reports the Philadelphia Business Journal.
