Patients with high-risk behaviors pose a danger to healthcare staff and other patients and are difficult for healthcare staff to manage. In this live webcast, expert speakers Tony York and Jeff Puttkammer will discuss the patient factors that often lead to violent events in the workplace, provide organizations with a clear understanding of environmental influences and triggers that contribute to violence, and provide tools and resources to help you reduce the risk of a violent event in your facility. 

Every employee has the power to influence their own safety but often lacks the proper training. Give your employees the knowledge they need to deal with patients with high-risk behaviors and keep your staff and facility safe! Join us on Wednesday, January 20, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET for this informative program.

During the program, attendees will:

  • Define high-risk patient behavior - beyond 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 tools and competencies required to successfully reduce and manage aggressive, at-risk patients

For more information or to order the webcast on demand, call HCPro customer service at 800-650-6787 or visit the HCPro Marketplace.
