a woman who is a nurse shows off a round wound on her left wrist that's covered by a large Band Aid.

Charlotte-based psychiatric nurse Erika Melson shows off a bite wound that she received when she tried to pull a patient who was choking a co-worker. Melson has been a nurse for 22 years, “and I’ve seen a sharp decline in respect for nurses.”

“I want some respect for what I do for my education and for my longevity and expertise in this profession,” she said.
