The violence in health care settings is, at the moment, a subject of research which often concerns all the countries of the world, since this phenomenon is increasing in times of turbulence that can shake up the organization of the health system, as well as periods of crisis which can hamper the normal course of healthcare facilities. At the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, violence in healthcare settings in Algeria took a rather worrying turn. So we have confined ourselves to looking for the parties responsible for this violence, without venturing to follow the classic path which sheds light exclusively on the emerging part of the iceberg; in this case the care seeker. Among the solutions proposed to alleviate the scourge of violence during this critical period: enhance interactivity within hospitals in order to dismantle relationship barriers; preventive and repressive measures can be combined in order to regulate the behavior of the care seeker; establish financial equity, which better serves the good citizen and which gives more responsibility to those who work in the informal sector.
