Default Aggression in the Workplace: Worldwide

At the moment I am feeling really angry at the way nurses are treated like punching bags.

Hence I went searching for a good avatar.

This picture is actually of a Chinese nurse in 2007. Maybe we should try the same tactics? Might just wake Joe Blow Public up to see what nurses / carers have to put up with?

AS soon as I can, I plan to enroll in a good self-defense course, if there are any sort of martial arts that I can do with my present physical limitations.

Luckly in HH I have not experienced much abuse

but when in the nursing homes was a different story
more verbal abuse than physical

the physical was mostly from the ones who were disoriented or unaware of their surroundings. (no blame placed there)

the bad thing is there is more verbal abuse from the staff than the residents.

HOw sad is that! That we treat our co-workers worse than we would anyone else.
