Daily threat of violence in hospitals:"The conference heard first-hand accounts of violence Scottish health workers face the daily threat of violence from patients, a conference has been told. Delegates representing hospital workers, GPs and social workers heard first-hand accounts of violence inflicted by patients on those trying to care for them. The two-day conference in the Murray Royal Hospital was told that about one in 10 health professsionals can expect to encounter such trouble in their workplace.

November 15, 1999
Former Nurse Gets Maximum Penalty For Murders:"BRAZIL, Ind. (AP) -- A former nurse was sentenced Monday to spend the rest of his life in prison for murdering six of his elderly patients, a crime the judge called "a paragon of evil at its most wicked." Orville Lynn Majors was sentenced to six consecutive 60-year terms for giving lethal injections of heart-stopping drugs to six patients being treated at Vermillion County Hospital in the mid-1990s."

October 26, 1999
Nursing by Numbers:"Nurse staffing has been cut dramatically in recent years, even as hospital profits have risen, according to the American Nurses Association. California this month moved to address the trend, mandating minimum nurse-to-patient ratios for hospitals. The action came in the wake of a report showing that California has the nation's second-lowest ratio of nurses per capita.

March 31, 1999: Arkansas: University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences:"Nursing Shortage To Worsen as Baby Boomers Grow Older:"A nursing shortage is imminent." Most people have heard those words before, particularly in the mid-to-late 1980s. Now we are hearing the admonition again, but this time the warning has more teeth -- mainly because the aging population of baby boomers is creating more demand for nursing care while many nurses in the work force today are nearing retirement age."
