Violence in Healthcare: A Growing Crisis

November 15th, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The threat of violence in the sanctum of the hospital and in the outpatient setting is growing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a 63% increase in violent attacks on health care providers between 2011 – 2018. National Nurses United, the country’s largest nursing group, reported that 48% of nurses reported violence in their care setting. The pandemic may have escalated this crisis, with some reports suggesting a 50% increase in hospital related violence. Join us for a discussion of the impact of violence against health care providers, current efforts being taken to ensure their safety, and next steps for reducing violence.
