Abstract

Abstract: The number of home healthcare clinicians who have been harmed by workplace violence as the direct result of patient care is not known. An initiative in the form of a 36-question survey was sent to the nurse administrators of 156 visiting nurse organizations in the United States. The purpose was to describe workplace violence policies and practices and explore what agencies are doing to protect visiting nurses.
