Workplace Violence Against Nurses: A Cross-Sectional Study

“Workplace violence has a notable impact on nursing staff, not only disrupting the normal medical care order but also dampening their enthusiasm and facilitating both the intention to leave and emotional exhaustion. This makes it important for nurse leaders to understand their subordinates’ working status and take measures to reduce the risk factors for workplace violence. However, there is little understanding of the prevalence of workplace violence in China, or the associations among empathy, work environment, and workplace violence. As such, the aims of this study were to (i) determine the prevalence of workplace violence against Chinese nurses and (ii) identify the risk factors of workplace violence.”
