Hospitals Take Official Stand on Violence Prevention

DENVER - This year, violence catapulted the Denver metro area and its local hospital communicators into the national media spotlight. In April, two troubled teens shot and killed 12 classmates and a teacher before committing suicide in the now-infamous Columbine High School rampage. Four months later, a nurse's aide was shot by her estranged husband shortly after she reported for her shift at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.
