Abstract

This article discusses certain variables relating to the characteristics of people who assault nurses, including patients, relatives and friends. The author suggests that the nature of nurses' occupational roles and responsibilities puts them at risk in their work but that individual or organisational strategies can be developed to minimise this risk.
