Background

Workplace violence is a significant stressor for nurses working in Emergency Department settings worldwide. It is estimated that a quarter of all health employees are likely to experience violent incidents, either verbal or physical, in their direct patient care during their career. Globally and within Australia, there is an increasing level of workplace patient-related violence toward health care workers in Emergency Departments. Notably, nurses have been identified as the most at risk health workers to be involved in aggressive situations with patients or relatives that result in physical injuries and psychological harm (Pich, et al. 2010).  Violence is a significant occupational hazard, but is often under-reported by nurses. Violence influences nurses’ retention, high turnover decisions and reduces nurses’ work productivity. Studies show that nurses working in Emergency Departments (ED) experience physical assaults at the highest rate of all nurses . In a US study, ‘ninety four percent of nurses experienced at least one post-traumatic stress disorder symptom after a violent event, with 17% having scores high enough to be considered probably for PTSD’. But alarmingly, there is an under-reporting of workplace violence and aggression which has been attributed, in part, to the poor response by managers to deal with the problem ((Pich, et al. 2010).  In order to address patient-related violence, it is essential to understand the complexity of the problem. One aspect is to gain insight into the perceptions of nurses who have experienced violence in the ED setting.

 

Research question: What are nurses’ experiences of patient-related violence whilst working in the Emergency Department setting?

The research question is highly significant in clinical practice because nurses’ experiences and coping strategies can provide insights into how they cope as they strive to provide person-centred care in a workplace with escalating levels of patient and relative-related violence ((Pich, et al. 2010).  Whilst the issue of workplace aggression in the ED is complex and multi-factorial, exploring this problem from the nurses’ perspectives is imperative.  Findings could inform safe work practices, interventions to prevent patient aggression, and provide care to ED nurses after such events ((Ramacciati, et al, 2015). Findings could provide local and international nurse leaders and managers with strategies to improve safety in work environments and occupational health and safety for nurses. Findings could also be used by nurse educators to raise awareness and promote effective strategies in the nursing curriculum. The research question is therefore highly relevant to clinical practice and has wider implications for the profession and the provision of safe working environments for all nurses working in Emergency Department settings.

 

SummarY ANALYSIS of Four (4) Primary Research Articles

Paper 1

 

Tan, MF, Lopez, V & Cleary, M. (2015). ‘Nursing management of aggression in a Singapore emergency department: A qualitative study’, Nursing & Health Sciences, vol. 17, no. 3, pp. 307-312.

 

The study uses a qualitative research method that involves observations and interviews on the selected population. The purpose of the study is to evaluate concerns by nurses in Singapore working at emergency departments about aggressive incidents of violence that is being encountered. The study also seeks to identify the sources of violence, how it can be managed and proposal of solutions on how to manage such situations in the future and other mitigation measures to take on the part of nurses and the medical facilities. This study has specifically addressed four concerns namely: the impact of aggressive patients on nurses, how nurses assess aggressive behaviour in patients, how they manage them and the organisational support and responsiveness. The study design entails a cohort study whereby the researcher makes prospective observations on the area of study with the view of identifying the concerns raised and seeking ways and solutions for addressing them. The population of the study involve ten nurses selected from an acute emergency hospital department in Singapore. This population is used as a representative of such facilities in Singapore to help put into perspective the aggressive violence concerns cited by nurses and other health practitioners in the country. The results indicate that the nursing profession in Singapore is dominated by females. The hospital systems in Singapore also have no policies and systems to support an aggressive-free workplace environment contract to what developed nations have. The study concludes that more research should be done on strategies to enhance better support for nurses working in emergency department and others. The limitation of the study is that it is not comprehensive and was based on one facility and the sample size may not represent the true concerns as cited. The study also states shortage of registered nurses across the country.  The implication of the study on practice is that there is need for legislation of policy and educational support for nurses working in emergency departments. More research has to be conducted on aggression related concerns in emergency departments of hospital facilities in Singapore in order to bring a better outcome for patients and nurses.

 

Paper 2

 

Catlette, M. (2005). A Descriptive Study of the Perceptions of Workplace Violence and Safety Strategies of Nurses Working in Level I Trauma Centers’, Journal of Emergency Nursing, vol. 31, no. 6, pp. 519-525.

 

The qualitative descriptive study aims to explore the workplace perceptions by nurses on violence and the level of strategies that have been out in place in level one trauma centres. The study also seeks to address the violence that nurses face in their areas of work being the biggest group of employees in the healthcare industry. The study design used in the analysis is that of systematic review of the highest levels of trauma centres in hospital facilities. The population of the study entails eight registered nurses from two level-1 trauma centres in the country as a representative population of nurses in the chosen facilities. The research method entails a descriptive research method that is designed to depict all the participant of the study in a very accurate manner. The research method uses three main strategies to collect information that include observations, case study and an in-depth study of the case study which in this case is the level one trauma centres. The results indicate that emergency centres have inadequate safety measures that make nurses in those facilities vulnerable to violence. The study concluded that there was need for hospital facilities to put in place adequate measures to address violence and aggression from patients and their family members. The limitations of the study include the fact that the population was small and may thus give a credible representation of the situations and concern at the chosen facilities. The study was also not comprehensive which gives recommendations for further research on the issue in the future. There is also need for larger population samples to confirm specific concerns that were studied by the case study. The implications of the study on the nursing practice is that its findings can be used to inform the policy for health care facilities in managing aggressive violence from patients on nurses. The identified inadequate measures may also be enhanced to improve the workplace experience and conditions for nurses.

 

 

 

Paper 3

 

Pich, J, Hazelton, M, Sundin, D & Kable, A. (2011). ‘Patient-related violence at triage: A qualitative descriptive study’, International Emergency Nursing, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 12-19.

 

The descriptive qualitative study explores out into the perspective of violence related experiences that triage nurses encounter in emergency departments in regional Australia. The study also seeks to demonstrate how nurses in Australia and global health care industry are prone to patient related violence that is both verbal and physical. The study design uses purposive sampling and semi-structured interviews in forms of control study that entails sampling a single facility to identify how the identified concern fares. The population of the study involves a sample population of six triage nurses at a teaching and referral hospital facility, representing the situation at the facility concerning the aggressive violence related incidents on nurses.  The research method used entails a qualitative and quantitative sample that entailed observations and evaluation of samples about the subject of research. The results of the study indicate that all participants in the research reported that they experienced episodes of violence in their course of work. The reported incidents of violence were also being perpetrated at an increasing rate and intensity. The study conclude that the violence being experienced was mainly due to a number of precipitating factors such as long waiting times by patients, substance abuse and alcoholism among patients seeking medical attention. Organisational factors also contributed to the situation based on the lack of training on how to minimise aggression, length of reporting processes and lack of formal briefing whenever violence incidents occur. The limitation of the study is that it involved only one facility and the population used was not credible enough to represent the true situation in the hospital facilities. The implications of the study on nursing practice are to come up with strategies to totally eliminate patient-related violence

 

Paper 6

 

Ramacciati, N, Ceccagnoli, A & Addey, B. (2015). ‘Violence against nurses in the triage area: An Italian qualitative study’, International Emergency Nursing, vol. 23, no. 4, pp. 274-280.

 

 

The phenomenological qualitative study investigates the feelings of nurses following episodes of aggressive violence from patients in different hospitals in the regions of Tuscany, Italy. The study also aims to demonstrate how healthcare professional are increasingly finding themselves in violence situations especially those who work in emergency departments. The study design entails a cohort study whereby the researcher makes prospective observations on the area of study with the view of identifying the concerns raised and seeking ways and solutions for addressing them. The research method used is stratified sampling which entails a purposive sample of nine nurses selected from seven different emergency departments of healthcare facilities. Results from the study indicate that most nurses find themselves inevitable in cases of violent episodes by patients. The study also indicates that most nurses have been accustomed to high levels of violence. Nurses are also aware that they are among the causes of conflict with patients that result in aggressive violence and that the gender role in the nursing profession plays a significant role about the response that they get when interacting with patients. In conclusion, episodes of violent encounters involving nurses and other healthcare professions have been increasing worldwide. Healthcare professionals face more violence than prisons or other correctional facilities. Despite the guidelines issued to manage violence, nurses and other healthcare practitioners continue to be at the risk of violence from patients. The limitation of the study is its representative sample that is fairly small to give a credible and valid analysis of the true situation about violence in the healthcare facilities. The implication of the violence on nurses is that its continued perpetration poses serious and severe costs to the healthcare system and the interaction of nurses and patients and the offer of medication and nursing services.

 

Discussion

 

From the four case analysis summarised above, it is evident that violence is very visible in most hospital facilities and specifically in the emergency departments. It is also evident that the issue is caused by a multiple of factors that include policy and procedures guidelines by healthcare facilities that are not adequate to address the problem (Catlette, 2005).  In Tan, et al, (2015) 30 percentages of the nurses interviewed indicated that they faced violent aggressions at their place of work. Populations used in the studies indicated that the hospital systems were the cause of the problem such as delays in offer of healthcare services that led to frustrations among patients resulting in aggressive behaviour. Catlette (2005), indicated that most hospital facilities did not put in place adequate policy framework for managing aggressive behaviour and patient violence. The practitioners in the facilities also were not well prepped and trained about the incidents of violence in ED. The ED is also identified as a high risk area for aggressive behaviour by patients causing inevitable problems to arise, putting staff another patients at risk. For instance, in one hospital under study, there were over 110 incidents reported in a period of five months (Catlette, 2005).  Three of the four case studies underscored the lack of training in nurses to know how to identify and manage violent situations. Most of the studies concur that nurses are inadequately prepared to manage the violence situations that they face (Ramacciati, et al, 2015). The fact that most nurses are of the female gender is also a contributing factor to the aggression behaviour mainly by male patients. Most violent episodes of patient with nurses also occurred during the night shifts as a common factor. Therefore, from the analysis of the four cases, the research methodologies used appropriately identify the issue of aggressive violence by patients to nurses is a real problem by a >50 confidence level that the issue needs to be significantly addressed (Tan, et al, 2015). (Tan, et al, 2015, Catlette, 2005, Pich, et al, 2011 and Ramacciati, et al, 2015) uses similar study design; all the four cases have similarities in the study population and durations of the study. All the studies used cognitive methodologies that were appropriate in evaluating the issue under study. All the studies use women as their population. Gaps in the studies include the fact that only further studies in the emergency departments can identify the most appropriate strategies for managing aggressive behaviour by patients. Some of the studies were also not conclusive in their implications in medical practice hence may not be used appropriately as a basis for informing policy in ED for instance, the use of 8 registered nurses from 2 level-1 facilities is not a sufficient representation of the healthcare system in a country (Catlette, 2005). The limitation of the studies is that they involved female nurses majorly which makes them lack the perspective of male nurses and the possibility of using them as a mitigation measure in the future. Study participants have also mentioned the process of reporting for violence and aggression is complex hence they refuse to report (Pich, et al, 2011).

Most of the findings concur that there is need to have legislation and policy frameworks by healthcare facilities on how to completely eliminate patient violence. Things to address include training nurses to know how to identify aggressive behaviour in patients and streamline the reporting and management guidelines by hospitals. All these are in efforts to completely alleviate the problem (Chapman, et al, 2009). Additionally, participants have recommended security inside ED could decrease aggression and violent behaviours. Most studies underscored the lack of training in nurses to know how to identify and manage violent situations. Most of the studies concur that nurses are inadequately prepared to manage the violence situations that they face (Sato, et al 2013).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

Aggressive violence and behavior is very evident in many hospitals emergency department. The perpetration of aggressive behavior is mainly done by verbal or physical abuse to mainly nurses. The analysis of the issue of aggressive behavior and violence in emergency departments of hospital facilities identified a number of causes for the problem. The identified causes include stress and feeling of being powerless by ED nurses. Patients also get frustrated for waiting for too long to be attended to while other patients become aggressive due to abuse of drugs and alcohol. Another reason why nurses faced violence is that fact that most nurses are of the female gender. From the analysis of the four cases, it was evident that most hospital facilities have no clear guidelines for managing aggressive behavior and violence involving patients (Pich, et al. 2010).  The healthcare professionals are also not well-trained. However, the findings of the analysis would help guide emergency departments of hospitals in Australia and the world over to overcome the problem. The findings of the studies would inform ED departments about the safe work practices that they can implement as well as other interventions to take to prevent aggression on nurses. The findings may also inform the local and international strategies about enhancing the safety of patients and nurses in working in emergence department settings.
