Dangerous Occupation

I work in a group home with developementally disabled men who at times can become very violent. My job is to restrain them to the best of my ability with physical force, and to make sure my other clients are out harms way. I feel comfortable so far as the really violent attacks are few and far between. Anyone else in a dangerous job?

I work in a group home with developmental and behavioral ladies. My girls get VERY violent as well. (When we were taking PMT cla__ses, they told me to pay attention, as the house that i was moving into needed lots of restraints and holds). However, one of the ladies have found out that i am expecting and is beginning to target me. My boss is aware of the situation, and understands that I come first. If i cant keep myself (and my baby) safe, i cant keep my girls safe. I love the job and look forward to coming back in full working order after i have the baby. How long are you planning on working up till? I am due in 2-14-06 and am planning on working until the beginning of February.

Hi Anber, we are due the same day. Valentine's. I plan to stop working Jan.15/06. I get 52 weeks of materinity/parental leave, and my dh and I agreed I would take it all. I guess I will work my b___t off untill then to gain as many insurable hours as possible. Good luck to you amber and be careful.
