The escalation of workplace violence in health care facilities is affecting the ability to adequately staff hospitals and could ultimately impact patient care. Reducing workplace violence takes a concerted effort from all departments and all staff in health care facilities. This session will focus on human resources and administration, two key departments that have important roles in reducing, preventing, and mitigating health care workplace violence.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Describe the use and impact of zero-tolerance policies.
- Explain the use and impact of proper training and support.
- Define hiring and retention challenges in the current environment.
