venues to protect. Hospitals contain expensive equipment and controlled
substances that attract a criminal element. They operate 24 hours per
day and are, by design, open to visitors. They are occupied by people
in crisis--both crime perpetrators and victims, and those with mental
illness who may be more likely to respond violently. It is no surprise,
then, that hospital employees are much more likely to be victims of workplace
violence than any other profession. According to OSHA, healthcare workers
are four times more likely to become workplace violence victims than other
