ED Workplace Violence is something all ED staff experience – from patients and visitors alike. Those patients with acute symptoms of mental illness pose a particular challenge. Serious harm to staff, as well as the long-term impact of consistent abuse, results in employee trauma which ultimately diminishes levels of safety for both patients and staff.

OSHA, The Joint Commission, the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), as well as other organizations have encouraged all healthcare institutions to focus on a safe work environment. This course will review the rate of violence in the ED, discuss the issue of workplace violence, and provide practical strategies that mitigate risk of harm to staff.

ED Workplace Violence will provide staff strategies to improve patient and staff safety, enhance staff morale, enhance throughput in your Emergency Department, and enhance overall patient experience. This class is essential for every emergency nurse. It provides focused training in key risk mitigation and de-escalation strategies that can be put to use immediately!
