Some 29 per cent of respondents said they had witnessed resident-to-staff abuse as often as once or twice a week, while 20 per cent said they saw resident-to-resident abuse at the same frequency. The union said its findings were consistent with rates reported in research in Europe and Canada, suggesting the phenomenon was not unique to Australia. In , a survey of nurses by Australian Catholic University found that 36 per cent of respondents reported being physically assaulted by a resident or family member in the past five shifts, a similar number reported experiencing a threat of assault and 29 per cent reported being emotionally abused.
