摘要

Workplace violence is recognized as a serious psychosocial work hazard in the workplace. Nurses face higher risks of workplace violence and poor mental health than other medical professionals. In addition to addressing personal factors, workplace violence should be understood and managed in the context of the organizational climate. In this article, the definition and types of workplace violence and a socio-ecological perspective on workplace violence are introduced. In addition, the prevalence and impact on mental health of workplace violence are described. Lastly, the concept of safety climate and its influence on mental health are proposed. We hope this article provides readers with a better understanding of workplace violence and a contextual perspective on this issue. In addition to understanding workplace violence and learning coping strategies and skills, hospital managers should promote a positive climate of safety to reduce the occurrence of workplace violence and the impact of workplace violence on nurses.
