“There are, of course, myriad issues that contribute to making hospital settings more prone to violent outbursts, including increased emotional stress on patients and family members dealing with an illness, financial struggles, an influx of forensic and mental health patients, as well as the various interpersonal dynamics of employees and visitors that all organizations must confront.”
