Patients, hospital staff, management, and society minimize the importance of assaultive behavior exhibited by clients towards psychiatric nurses. Each day nurses care for people experiencing changes in their health status. These changes are often associated with patient distress and emotions such as anxiety, anger, and depression. Because of this, work place violence continues to be a growing concern for health care workers, especially psychiatric nurses. Patients of hospital psychiatric units have assaulted nurses repeatedly. The assaults cause physical and sometimes lasting, emotional injuries to staff and patients. Yet, paradoxically, care from nurses involves responding with empathy to the distress that patients' experience exhibited through their violence. The quality of their responses could be directly related to patient outcomes and further use of violence by the patient. Health care workers must embrace the concept that any act of violence is unacceptable. Rogers's (1970) theoretical framework of Unitary Human Beings fits with this meta-analysis. The principle of reciprocity postulates, "the inseparability of man and environment and predicts that sequential changes in the life process are continuous, probabilistic revisions occurring out of the interactions between man and environment" (Rogers, 1970, p 97). The meta-analysis examined violence from definition to empirical referents that can be used as indicators of anger/violence. The review summarized the characteristics of assaultive patients, environmental antecedents and assaulted nurses. Additionally, the assessment, intervention, and care planning needed by the nurse to work effectively with potentially violent patients was explored. The intended culmination of this project is to create training modules that emphasize research based strategies which decrease violence by patients in acute psychiatric settings towards nurses, thus reducing emotional and physical injuries of staff nurses and patients. This work will be used for future research focused towards establishing evidence based practice. AN: MN030006
