Each month, the Research Council Steering Committee features an article written by an APNA member.

This month we are featuring an article by Dr. Della Derscheid, Christine Lohse, & Judith E. Arnetz titled, Risk Factors for Assault and Physical Aggression Among Medically Hospitalized Adult Patients Who Had a Behavioral Emergency Call: A Descriptive Study.

Article Highlight:  Health care settings are a primary location for workplace violence. Physical aggression was the most significant predictor of assault. Mental health conditions anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation were significant for decreased risk of assault and/or physical aggression.
