Patients with high-risk behaviors pose a danger to healthcare staff and other patients and are difficult for healthcare employees to manage. If you missed the January 20 webcast, it's not too late to join healthcare security expert Jeff Puttkammer, M.Ed., in his discussion about the patient factors that often lead to violent events in the workplace. This program will help provide a clear understanding of environmental influences and triggers that contribute to violence, and supply tools and resources to help you reduce the risk of a violent event in your facility. Employees have the power to influence their own safety, but they often lack the proper training. Give your staff the knowledge they need to deal with high-risk patients and keep themselves and their facility safe!
 

At the conclusion of this on-demand program, participants will be able to:

  • Define high-risk patient behavior (more than just mental health patients)
  • Explain how a balanced approach to patient-focused care and personal safety impacts patient satisfaction and work-related injuries
  • Identify how workspace design and medical equipment placement can promote or reduce the safety of staff, patients, and visitors
  • Define policies, procedures, and practices aimed at reducing safety risks associated with at-risk patients
  • Understand the critical role staff education and training plays in helping provide the culture, tools, and competencies required to successfully reduce and manage patient-generated violence

Don't miss this opportunity to hear practical advice and have complex regulations simplified in this program suitable for your whole organization. For more information or to order the webcast on demand, call HCPro customer service at 800-650-6787 or visit the HCPro Marketplace.
