Violent crimes at hospitals on the rise

WLS-TV ABC 7, July 14, 2014

The ABC7 I-Team investigates hospital violence and whether incidents like the one Friday in Indiana are becoming more common and the results are disturbing. The I-Team has found that violent crimes at hospitals across the United States are increasing and patients, their families and medical personnel are more at risk every day. While the Merrillville hospital murder involved a knife, most hospital attackers use guns. Regardless of the threat, institutions that once were considered sanctuaries of healing now have to fortify their buildings and train their people to prevent violence.
