RUTHERFORD, NJ – Felician University’s School of Nursing podcast, The Felician Lantern, has released a new episode entitled, Tales of the CNO Part II: Violence in the Workplace.
On this episode, Dr. Daria Waszak & Dr. Elizabeth Van Dyk address the sad but all-too-real issue of violence in the workplace. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the rate of injuries from violent attacks against medical professionals grew by 63% from 2011-2018 and that the COVID-19 pandemic has only made conditions worse. How do nurses take steps to combat against workplace violence and protect themselves from harm?
Their guest is Donna Marie Watridge, Chief Nursing Officer of Newton Medical Center and Hackettstown Medical Center. A national voice on nursing management practices, listen here as she breaks down this important topic.
