Workplace Violence Bill Proposed in MA: The Massachusetts Nurses Association has been pushing for a bill focusing on workplace violence prevention while citing statistics stating that healthcare workers, specifically female nurses, are at a high risk of violence by patients or their family members. While there is no federal requirement for such a law, many states independently require workplace violence programs. Requirements of the proposed MA bill include the development and implementation of workplace violence programs, annual risk assessments, and the creation of an in-house crisis response team.
