The nurse is complaining about a client that has dementia. The client is mobile and slaps the nurse on the gluteus maximus each time he passes by. The nurse tells the client, "If you don't behave yourself, I am going to throw you out and you won't have anywhere to go." The charge nurse overhears the nurse, and states "Do you realize what your statement could be construed as?" What is the best statement for the nurse to respond?
It could be construed as assault.
So according to nursing practice, an assault is basically threatening to do bodily harm to a patient and it is usually not supported by any lawful justification, which can result in the offence being punishable by the state law. Another example to further define assault would be, when walking past someone and intentionally bumping into them. This can be interpreted as assault. I hope this helps.
