Threw a wheelchair at me

Pregnant and attacked

Attack led to brain damage

Treated for broken rib

"This is supposed to be a felony "

"Come to the ED and shoot everyone"

Death threats while trying to help

Nothing came of the police reports

Car vandalized, nurse choked

Heavy medical equipment thrown

Bitten so hard she needed surgery

Spit and bit

Assault almost every day

Too many boarding

This is an everyday occurrence

"Assault should be a felony, but it is not"

Cursed out for doing my job

Punching while strapped onto stretcher

Brain injury and PTSD

An incident pretty much every shift

I don't feel safe

Large chunk of arm bitten off

Completely swept under the rug

Too violent for jail

Reporting does not change anything

He bit a nurse

Violent after seven days boarding

Pulled out a gun

Ripped the sink off the wall

He threatened staff, kicked holes in the wall

There are constant threats

Unsustainable

Bomb threats to our facility

There's nothing we can do

Too much effort to pursue justice

Aggressive threats

Beat up in the ambulance bay

Choked another patient's mom

Attacked staff and shattered glass door

Behavior only acceptable in hospital

He threatened to shoot all of us
