In recent years violent crime in hospitals has increased 200% and the rate of non-fatal assaults on healthcare workers is much higher than the rate of non-fatal assaults for all private-sector industries combined.

Healthcare facilities must often deal with the results of violence outside their walls, but sometimes the violence seeps into the healthcare environment itself, as with instances of domestic or gang violence that continue into a facility.
