Another Study Proves the Obvious



A study conducted by the joint Healthcare Commission and Royal College of Psychiatrists found that psychiatric nurses are at high risk for being assaulted at work. Really? Imagine that, nurses who work with violent patients get hurt. I wonder how many man-hours and how much money went into creating this earthshaking report.

File this study under the category of, “Well, Duh!?” Thanks to Beakie from Mental Nurse for bringing this article to my attention.
