We need to call #TimesUp on domestic violence, too.
Changes in law aren’t enough. Our work isn’t done just because nurses and others are required to report the abuse. We must address systemic issues that allow abusers to continue terrorizing victims while neighbors and communities look the other way.
Most of the recent mass shooters in the U.S. had prior histories of stalking or domestic violence. These links aren’t just a footnote in the story. They are predictive, and we must take them seriously as red flags.
The costs domestic violence imposes on us as a society in dreams shattered, lives ruined, and families traumatized are far too high.
May 6-12 is Nurses Week. NUHHCE nurses nationwide are marking the week by taking part in community service projects all across the country, now through October to do their part to help domestic violence survivors.
You can take action now for change. Send a letter to your Governor, asking him or her to do more to make the big changes required to put a stop to domestic violence.
We are 30,000 nurses, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists and other health care professionals committed to patient advocacy at the bedside and beyond.
