Nurse seeking change after nearly being killed by patient

An Intensive Care Unit nurse is badly bruised after she says she was almost choked to death by her patient.

Now, Ashley Schade is sharing her experience to spread awareness about the rising rates of violence in hospitals.

Washington State Nurses Association Representative Jayson Dick says, "There's so many things that nurses are responsible for, a lot of people don't know what it looks like to be in the shoes of a nurse, but they're there through the entire experience, they are the front line of healthcare."
