http://ph.news.yahoo.com/gma/20101105/tph-pinay-nurse-s-death-in-california-ja-ac8c905.html it seems procedures and policies have to be reviewed ... for instance, perhaps in prison clinics, safety measures against possible crime by a patient has to be implemented ... e.g. "anything" can be a weapon ... even bare hands ... What do you think ?

I think so too. Perhaps in the long-term course of focusing on helping patients, a nurse may "overlook" the threats to personal safety ... What do you think ?

Sadly to say that if you take a job you should protect yourself at all cause. We can't deny it. You risk yourself when you are taking a job. That's the reality. That's all.

perhaps there needs to be new policies to protect nurses working in such dangerous areas. For instance, perhaps restraints could be made mandatory to "special" patients. What do you think ?
