Preventing Healthcare Workplace Violence

Picture of Katharine Dahl By Katharine Dahl


Working in healthcare almost guarantees you will experience workplace violence in your career.

The statistics are staggering:

  • 75% of all workplace assaults between 2011 and 2013 happened in healthcare settings.
  • Hospital employees victimized by violence on the job are forced to take time away from work at a rate that's five times higher than workers in other occupations.
  • 78% of emergency department physicians nationwide report being the target of workplace violence in the past year

In California, Cal OSHA recognized the growing trend of violence in healthcare, and proposed sweeping regulations. The regulations require every healthcare employer to create a Workplace Violence Prevention Plan and alarm or other similar system.
