There are a lot of dangerous occupations like lumberjacks, fisherman, policeman, firemen and many others. The risk that they take everyday in their jobs is not reflected in the pay they get unfortunately as is the case with nurses. Nurses are frequently the targets of violence in their workplace and as an added bonus their workplace is often located in above average or average crime areas.
That makes them targets for violence, both in and out of the hospital. And because most nurses are women that just adds to the problem. Women are the targets of violence and nine out of every 10 cases.
Workplace violence reports show that two thirds of all murders and assaults that happen in the workplace happen in healthcare settings. Some reports show that 50% of all nurses are affected by violence in the workplace.
It has become such a huge problem that many hospitals are changing their procedures to try and make the workplaces a safer environment for nurses, doctors and patients. That includes more security personnel, security cameras and security equipment. Hospitals are even offering self defense classes teaching nurses basic self-defense techniques.
Nurses are starting to carry self-defense tools like stun guns inside the hospital. I recommend the pepper gun for nurses outside the hospital.
Once nurses exit the hospital they often enter darkened stairwells to go to darkened parking lots to get their car. For those people who work late shifts there are very few people around. Since the areas are above-average crime areas in the first place they are frequently a breeding ground for crime.
Self defense products are nonlethal by nature and are meant to give you time to get away from a dangerous situation to seek help. A 3 to 5 second application of the stun gun will give you 5 to 10 minutes to get away. A shot in the face of OC spray from the Mace pepper gun will give you up to 45 minutes to get away.
Don’t fall victim to crime, especially when you’re at work. Start defending yourself with some self defense products. Carry both a stun gun and pepper gun for self defense in and out of the hospital.
