Sexual Harassment of Nurses, NPs, and PAs: Report 2018

; Sandra Levy


June 27, 2018

Sexual comments about their anatomy or body parts and leering were most frequent, as were deliberately infringing on body space and standing too close. About one half of medical staff respondents (51%) also reported being subject to unwanted groping, hugging, patting, or other physical contact.

Among PAs who were harassed, infringement on body space and sexual comments and leering were most often reported, similar to the results reported by nurses and NPs.
