Default Domestic Violence in the Workplace.

I just wrote a story over at Nursing Jobs. Org about domestic violence in the workplace. Many years ago I worked with a woman who was a victim of domestic violence. She came to work one day with a black eye and a story about how she ran into a door. My boss didn't believe and got her help. She was lucky because she got support from her employer. Have you seen similar things at work?

I'm lucky to at least not experience domestic violence. My wife can't beat me, and I can't take in my conscience harassing her.

Never have I seen colleagues in the hospital where i work suffer such violence yet, but i know of someone. There's this couple in our neighborhood slamming things around. And then next thing you'll know the sobbing wife storms out the house and leaves with the 2 kids, and comes back after a couple of weeks. It's just so disturbing that there are parents who cannot handle disputes without waging war at each other, especially when the kids are around.

Good thing the parents of the guy regularly visit the family. I think they helped the couple device effective ways to solve disputes. Now, i don't hear them shout or throw things at each other anymore.

It's really sad when kids witness domestic violence.

I came across a journal article about violence (verbal and even physical abuse) on nurses, particularly those who are assigned in the emergency room. What’s the best way to effectively deal with violence in workplace? I am looking forward to be an ER nurse, however, I was alarmed by this fact,thanks

I haven’t had a colleague who experiences domestic violence yet and so far, in my short span of time practicing as a nurse, I haven’t met a patient who is a victim of domestic violence which is why I don’t have the concrete idea as to how to handle their case in actual...of course I have the idea from the book, but I think it will be different when you apply it in actual scenario

When I was a first degree nurse student, I was working as student with a nurse who was be hit and how she knew how victims feel, she tolds her situation to patients how were living the same case, on this way, she helped patients and convince them to denounce the abuse.

I to have worked with Nurses who have been abused and glad to say that with great support in the workforce they have gained their self esteem back.
