Delaware County legislator to introduce anti-violence for health care workers

    Pa. Rep. Nicholas Micozzie will join Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied professionals and Delaware County District Attorney Mike Green to announce legislation to protect health care workers.

    At the midday press conference, the group will introduce a bill that aims to prevent workplace violence against health care professionals in part by increasing the penalty for doing so.

    A similar bill passed in New Jersey earlier this year.
