Stop Healthcare Violence is lobbying for Massachusetts legislation
that would make assault on health care workers a felony rather than a misdemeanor.
Such Massachusetts legislation would strengthen the penalty for assault or assault and battery on an emergency medical technician, ambulance operator, ambulance attendant or healthcare provider.
Docket Number 3466
Docket Number 3466 will soon have a House Bill number, and will be once again sponsored by Representative Denise Garlick.
Please check back for further updates.
We are seeking volunteers to help with this legislation. Please contact email@example.com to volunteer.
