Hi, have you spoke with your OBGYN about this?  Besides worrying about the elderly being aggressive, which I totally understand, have you had any complications so far?  Congratulations on your pregnancy :)

Yes it is safe to go back to work, however I would ask to have a job title switch and try doing something else or ask to not work with extremely aggressive patients.  I am sure your boss would understand that you are a bit concerned losing the baby over a fight with an elderly patient.  Also make sure that you sanitize and try to avoid getting sick.  Good Luck

Congratulations!   Also, if you work with the elderly please be aware of what medications you are handling for them. Some meds, such as those for chemotherapy are not safe for pregnant women even to touch. As in, you are not even supposed to touch the bottle. If you haven't all ready, let your supervisor know and request to be removed from the responsibility of handling certain medicines.
