Our dedicated doctors and nurses face a greater risk of violence in the workplace

29 December 2015

Our dedicated doctors and nurses face a greater risk of violence in the workplace.

It's sad but it's true.

Well, we won't tolerate threats, abuse of assaults against our doctors, nurses and paramedics.

These frontline workers deserve nothing but respect.

I'm proud that our Labor Government is delivering on our promise to boost safety inside hospitals and prevent violence against nurses and doctors.

This week, we announced a $20 million fund that will make 26 Victorian hospitals a safer place to work.

Because the most important thing you can ever do at work is to come home safe at the end of the day.

Nothing matters more than that.
