After getting care, both head back out to an environment of violence and poverty. But, a new study finds, the one who had been in a fight will have a 60% chance of involvement in a violent incident involving a firearm within the next two years.

Violence to Homecare Workers Means New Policies Needed

When it comes to caring for older adults, there is a shift to a consumer-driven model that focuses on keeping patients in their homes and out of institutional care facilities. It’s an arrangement that can benefit both the patient and the healthcare system, but new research by Johns Hopkins School of Nursing professor Nancy Glass and colleagues shows that the personnel working in patient homes are often at risk for harassment and violence with no plan of prevention.
