dc.description.abstract Violence in America's emergency departments is increasing, causing harm to physicians, staff and patients, according to new research. Nearly half (47 percent) of emergency physicians report having been physically assaulted while at work, with 60 percent saying those assaults occurred in the past year. Nearly 8 in 10 also say that patient care is being affected, with 51 percent of those saying that patients also have been physically harmed. The results of a poll of more than 3,500 emergency physicians across the nation were released [October 2, 2018] alongside new research about violence in Michigan emergency departments, presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), ACEP18/Scientific Assembly….A new study ("Reassessment of Violence Against Emergency Physicians") published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine and presented at ACEP18 this week found that despite increased security measures in Michigan, the problems of emergency department violence are getting worse. [CVRL Note: this webpage includes an infographic summarizing poll findings and links to the full results of the poll conducted by Marketing General Incorporated (MGI) on behalf of ACEP. The web page also links to the conference abstract for the ACEP18 presentation on violence in Michigan emergency rooms.] (Author Text) en_US
