According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June 2016, “Health care workplace violence is an underreported, ubiquitous, and persistent problem that has been tolerated and largely ignored." The highest number of assaults in U.S. workplaces each year is directed at health care workers.
We invited Steven M. Crimando, BCETS, CHS-V, Behavior Science Applications, to dive into workplace violence in a healthcare setting and unpack why research in this area is under developed, and how you can keep your staff safe. In this white paper, you will learn about:
- The five types of violence your facility could be subjected to
- Active shooter risks in healthcare settings
- Violence risks in home and community-based healthcare
- OSHA's new focus on healthcare violence
Efforts to mitigate the risk of violence to all healthcare workers in all healthcare settings must come from multiple angles in order to complete a viable violence reduction strategy.
