Facing the workplace violence epidemic: 3 strategies for staff and patient safety

For the past several years, healthcare facilities have seen increasing levels of violence, making healthcare workers five times more likely to experience workplace violence than workers in other industries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare workers accounted for 76% of all U.S. workplace violence injuries in 2020.

This doesn't just make for a dangerous work environment for healthcare workers — it also instills fear in patients and worsens public perception of the healthcare industry at a time when public trust is already falling.
