Charlene Richardson, Region 4 community organizer
On May 21, Charlene Richardson, a registered nurse with more than 15 years of bedside experience, joined the MNA's division of legislation and governmental affairs as the Region 4 community organizer.
Richardson has worked at Beverly Hospital for almost all of her career and her professional nursing experience has included time working on a variety of floors, including the surgical unit, med/surg pediatrics, the ER and the PACU. During this time she also had the opportunity to be an active MNA member, working with her bargaining unit and with the MNA on key legislative issues, particularly those related to workplace violence.
In 2005, Richardson was presented with the MNA's Kathryn McGinn Cutler Advocate for Health and Safety Award. The honor was given in recognition of her advocacy work following a horrific and tragic incident that involved her being attacked by an

One of those hoping to testify was Charlene Richardson, a former ER nurse at Beverly Hospital who was brutally assaulted by a patient she was treating in 2003.

BOSTON - Life changed completely for ...

BOSTON - Life changed completely for Charlene Richardson the day she was brutally assaulted by a patient she was treating in the emergency room of Beverly Hospital.

"I don't think I'll ever be the same," she said.
Richardson was one of about 40 hospital nurses at the Statehouse yesterday afternoon showing support for a bill that would make assaulting a health care worker on duty a specific crime with its own set of penalties.
Since she was assaulted in March 2003, the registered nurse has spent her time advocating for a law that would support her and other nurses while they help patients.
Richardson hopes an existing law that protects emergency medical technicians against assault from patients would be extended to protect others, including nurses.
...
As it is, an assault and battery on a nurse is essentially seen as part of the job and hospitals tend to discourage workers from filing charges, Richardson said.
She had to press charges privately and waited 16 months before her attacker, John Brown, formerly of 100 Washington St., Salem, was convicted. He was sent to jail for 18 months.
"That was the worst for me," Richardson said of her long journey to seek justice.
She has since become an advocate for nurses who have similarly been assaulted while working. A nurse for nearly two decades, Richardson is now associate director of education for the Massachusetts Nurses Association, the state's largest union for registered nurses and health care workers.
Richardson also said the law would help the public. If an ER nurse is away from her duties because of an assault, patients aren't getting care.
After her incident, she would only work in the locked recovery room. She once vowed never to return to the ER.
Working to help others who have been attacked by patients has helped Richardson grow stronger emotionally. Now, she splits her time between the ER and the recovery room.
"Never say never," she said of her return.
Richardson said she would be able to find some semblance of closure about her ordeal once the bill becomes law.
