Why Should You Attend:

The healthcare setting is one of the most violent venues in which to work in the U.S. and internationally. Healthcare is unique in that the violence that occurs here has negative ramifications to quality patient care. The Joint Commission has even taken a stand on dealing with unsafe patient care due to abusive (which may constitute violence) behavior by health professionals.

Your role as leaders in your healthcare organization equates to a responsibility to create and sustain a safe working environment for your employees and a safe and healing environment for your patients. This webinar will review the critical elements required to plan, design, develop, implement, and evaluate your healthcare organization’s violence prevention plan.

Are you prepared to deal with an active shooter on one of your patient floors—which happened in a hospital in Minnesota? As we hear more and more about mass shootings, it causes us to pause and wonder if it could really happen in a hospital, clinic, or when visiting a patient’s home. Fortunately, most violence does not rise to that level, but nonetheless, the violence that commonly occurs in healthcare has profound consequences for all involved. It is essential you prepare to prevent and react to minimize the violence that occurs.

  • To define workplace violence
  • To provide examples of workplace violence in healthcare
  • To discuss the relevant laws that address workplace violence

  • To examine the causes of healthcare violence
  • To discuss a violence prevention program to ensure patients, families, visitors, and staff are safe

Topic Background:

Healthcare organizations include hospitals, outpatient clinics, medical office clinics, home health care, home-based hospice, paramedic and emergency medical services, mobile clinics, drug treatment programs and ancillary healthcare organizations.

In the U.S. some states, such as California, have passed legislation specifically addressing violence in healthcare. There are other federal and state laws that require the employer to address the hazards of workplace violence, and laws that protect the victims of workplace violence.

OSHA identifies healthcare as one of three “high risk” industries for violence and has written a guidance document specifically outlining steps healthcare should take to combat the risk.

Violence in healthcare is perpetrated not only by patients, their families, and visitors, but as well among the health professionals themselves. It may include a patient admitted to the ER high on drugs and wielding a knife. Or, it may be an enraged physician in the operating room flinging a scalpel at a nurse. And, the violence may be one nurse bullying another nurse – depending on how the word “violence” is actually defined.

In 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data reported healthcare and social assistance workers were the victims of approximately 11,370 assaults by persons; a greater than 13% increase over the number of such assaults reported in 2009. Almost 19% (i.e., 2,130) of these assaults occurred in nursing and residential care facilities alone. Unfortunately, many more incidents probably go unreported.
