Making physical attacks on healthcare workers a felony

This petition had 110 supporters

Everyday healthcare workers are under attack. Verbal, physical and mental abuse by people who feel they are entitled to treatment that is above and beyond what is required. 

Nurses, therapists, paramedics are threatened by both patients and visitors if they do not receive what they want. Whether it is medication, food, or attention, if they are not getting what they want, they become verbally, if not physically hostile.

This behavior helps no one!!!! These people hinder care for ALL patients!!! If a nurse is hurt on the job, everyone suffers!!!!

Please help all healthcare workers, by making it a felony to physically attack a healthcare worker!!! New York State has recently adopted this law and now Michigan needs to follow. Gov Rick Snyder and Lt Gov Brian Calley need to be aware of this serious problem in Michigan.
