Healing with hearts and hurting with words
Posted: 10/6/2003 at 11:55:54 AM

Nurses at Risk

My Point of View... Commentary by Larry Leeds, RN Nurses are at risk every time we work. Knowing we are likely to be exposed to any number of harmful or fatal diseases and infectious materials. We all understand the chances we are taking and take them willingly enough. We accept the fact that we must take every patient whether they have Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Tuberculosis, Hepatitis A, B, or C, infectious wounds and even good old influenza. We realize that with our profession we acknowledged that there were risks involved. Each of us is also at risk for a very serious problem that receives very little attention. Any patient may at any time choose to press assault or battery charges.
