The complexities of managing aggression and violence in healthcare

Violence against healthcare workers is a rising epidemic. After persevering through 18 months of a global pandemic, America’s health care workers are being subjected to another aspect of the ongoing pandemic — increasing workplace violence.

Webinar #4 replay: The complexities of managing aggression and violence in healthcare: Risk management principles and strategies

This increasing threat of violence continues to negatively impact the delivery, quality and accessibility of healthcare. However, there are strategies and solutions that can help mitigate the risk, protect brand and reputation and support your organization in the event of an incident. 

Over the past few months, Marsh and industry leaders have explored how to identify threats, security planning and the role police and response forces play in strategy and also addressed the critical issue of how we care for our caregivers.

Our most recent discussion focused on risk management strategies and included:

  • Enterprise risk management considerations

Kyle Rolf of Beazley joined to provide an overview of special coverages including Deadly Weapons Protection designed to help organizations address these ever-present risks.
