Workplace Violence Rampant in Healthcare

Workplace violence against healthcare workers is rampant, but solutions remain unclear, largely as a result of underrecognition and underreporting of the problem and poor-quality research, according to a review article published in the April 28 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The article stems from the tragic death of a surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, in January 2015. The surgeon was shot and killed by the son of one of his patients, who had died.

QLD Nurse Pay-Packets Boosted This Week

Queensland Health’s over 32,000 public nurses and midwives have this week received their final instalment of an almost 10% pay increase since the Newman LNP government was elected to office just over two years ago.Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said the pay packet boost was in sharp contrast to the trauma experienced by nurses and midwives under the previous government when they couldn’t even be guaranteed a regular pay-packet thanks to Labor’s infamous billion-dollar payroll debacle.
