Abstract
ED workers are at risk of violence because of the increased numbers of patients and visitors under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol or with psychiatric disorders or dementia. In addition, a presence of weapons in the emergency department, a stressful ED environment, and a flow of violence from the community may contribute to violence in the emergency department. The purpose of this study was to survey ED workers about the violence they experience from patients and visitors.
