We’re committed to making healthcare workplaces safe for everyone.
Healthcare is the second most violent non-government profession in the US. 88% of healthcare workers report experiencing some type of violence, injury or harassment in their workplace. This includes verbal, emotional, and physical abuse from both colleagues and patients. Incidents can cost hospitals over $100,000 to replace a staff member but hospitals do not always have appropriate training and procedures to avoid these dangerous situations. Moreover, less than half of these incidents are reported.
This kind of behavior shouldn’t be accepted in healthcare. That’s why we’re teaming up with hospitals, administration, healthcare organizations, the public, and the workers themselves. It’s time to end violence and harassment in healthcare – together.
