No staff should have to tolerate physical violence. If the violence is due to medication or mental illness then legal action may not be appropriate, but that option should always be there.

There is no excuse for violence caused by drunkeness or drug users, These people should have all treatment withdrawn and , if they survive, be prosecuted.


Totally agree, if you assault someone without being under the influence of whatever it is you would be done for it, these people are the same !


Totally agree, but how many attacks on staff go unreported?
