The downturn in the economy may be resulting in more violence against health care professionals in general and nurses in particular. And as Charles Fishburne reports, Virginia nurses are looking for ways to defuse a potentially dangerous trend.
As reported yesterday, Governor Bob McDonnell and the Virginia Congressional delegation are speaking out about U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ recommendation to close the Joint Forces Command in Norfolk. Later yesterday, the Governor resumed his opposition.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced yesterday 100 billion dollars in cuts to the defense budget, including a major command center in Norfolk. But Charles Fishburne reports it's not a done deal, and Virginia’s Congressional delegation is allied to fight it.
