Assembly Sends Rodriguez Bill to Protect Emergency Room Workers to Governor

The California State Assembly gave final approval to Assembly Bill 172 by Assembly member Freddie Rodriguez which seeks to close a loophole in the law and prevent workplace violence in the Emergency Room. The bill now goes to Governor Jerry Brown.

Under current law, an assault or battery against a physician or nurse rendering emergency medical care outside of a hospital, clinic or health care facility is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2,000, or a one year jail time, or both. However, if an assault or battery occurs inside the health care facility, the crime is punishable as a lower misdemeanor with a jail time of up to 6 months. Sponsored by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), AB 172 would close this loophole by increasing the penalties for violence committed against all health care workers engaged in providing services within the ER.
