GPS Badges for Healthcare Workers

The Missouri Nurses Association says GPS panic badges for healthcare employees are a great step in helping to combat workplace violence in healthcare settings. Cox Medical Center Branson is adding the devices due to an increase in the number of patients assaulting workers. Heidi Lucas, the state director of the Missouri Nurses Association, says changes, like at Cox, must be made to protect healthcare workers.


Lucas says she would like all Missouri hospitals to get the gadgets, but she recognizes they are expensive.
