Resources to Assist Hospitals
In an effort to educate healthcare providers and the public on the impact of healthcare workplace violence, we are excited to launch the “Hospital Safe Zones” campaign. As we look to other industries to achieve high reliability in our clinical practices, we can also learn from industries that have reduced harm by developing a culture of safety. From “work zones” to “school zones,” we know that these efforts can succeed in bringing increased attention to one’s surroundings to enhance behavioral awareness. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are institutions of wellness that are held to a higher standard of health and safety for employees, patients, and visitors. Caregivers make a vow to do no harm, and we should make that same vow to them. Help Make Hospitals Safe Zones in South Carolina.
