An emergency room nurse who was stabbed on the job at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge, Mass., is pleading for more hospital security after the attack, according to an article on the CBS Boston website.
She is one of the driving forces behind a bill that would require safety plans for healthcare workers.
Elise Wilson was stabbed in the neck and suffered deep defensive wounds to her arm as she tried to defend herself, severing nerves that have left her arm with limited mobility.
The bill, now known as Elise’s Law, was heard by the joint committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, passing favorably.
