In the last year, violence toward emergency workers at Mercy Health in Lebanon has doubled and leaders are taking steps to stop it.
Hospital President Mike Gillen tells KTTS News nurses have been hit, kicked, and spit on ,while a security guard ended up with a broken nose trying to restrain a patient.
Gillen says the hospital has begun an education campaign and reminds visitors that threats and injury to emergency workers on the job can lead to felony charges from the prosecutors office.
