We are advocating for legislation that addresses workplace violence in healthcare facilities. Our proposal consists of a requirement for these facilities to assess the danger elements connected with workplace violence and develop a program to address it. Direct care employees must have input in building this program, which must be reevaluated annually. Moreover, reporting mechanisms must be established to collect information on incidents of workplace violence, and the Division of Public Well being must be informed of these incidents. Presently, hospitals are hesitant to report such incidents, but with penalties and reporting specifications in location, they will be compelled to do so. Moreover, victims of workplace assault must be offered time off to address the concern, in particular if they select to press charges. Legislation is required to boost penalties for workplace assaults against healthcare workers, as only 32 states at the moment treat such assaults as felonies. In total, 38 states have laws addressing workplace violence against healthcare workers and nurses. Research have shown that implementing measurable and enforceable workplace violence prevention applications leads to enhanced high quality of care, lowered incidents of violence, and larger employees morale. By giving help to staff throughout workplace violence incidents, healthcare facilities can not only attract but also retain their employees additional properly.
