Dr. Khoujah and Dr. Chang investigate and discuss best treatment options for the venomous bitten patient. The second lesson in the issue is “Hostile Workplace – Managing the Agitated Patient in the Emergency Department”. Alarmingly, 78% of emergency care providers have experienced at least one violent workplace act in the past 12 months, and 20% describe being physically assaulted by a patient.
