Hospitals in Australia to Provide Doctors, Nurses & Security Personnel with Body Armor 01-01-2019

West Australian hospital patients and visitors have increasingly become more aggressive and even violent. For their safety, the doctors and nurses as well as security personnel will soon be issued body armor.

The Australian Health Department has placed an order for 250 custom body armor vests, claiming the protective armor was needed “to enhance the safety of employees most at risk of being injured by the increase in aggression and violence in hospital settings.”

Why do I think this was dangerous and misleading, and what does the case show about the editorial process of the journal that published and promoted it?
