Stop Healthcare Violence is lobbying for Massachusetts legislation
that would make assault on health care workers a felony rather than a misdemeanor.
House Bill H795
House Bill H795 lobbies for said felony legislation – making assault on healthcare workers a felony in the State of Massachusetts.
House Bill H795 Did Not Pass.
It is with great disappointment that we are sharing the news that HB H795 did not pass. This Bill would have changed the penalties for assault on a healthcare worker in the State of Massachusetts from a misdemeanor to a felony. Thank you to everyone who contacted State legislators to urge support.
Why We Need Stricter Legislation
