The High Risk of Violence to Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare Professionals are at an increased risk for workplace violence. The Joint Commission estimates that healthcare and social service workers are five times more likely to experience violence in the hospital setting than all other workers. Many incidents go unreported, but the high incidence of violence in healthcare settings has resulted in The Joint Commission’s (TJC) creation and release of new and revised Workplace Violence Prevention Requirements that went into effect on January 1, 2022, for all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals. The updated requirements reflect the growing body of knowledge on effective workplace violence prevention strategies and address various types of healthcare workplaces, including inpatient units, clinics, offices, and behavior health units. They also emphasize the importance of a comprehensive approach to workplace violence prevention that includes elements such as leadership commitment, workforce engagement, policies and procedures, training and education, incident reporting and analysis, environmental design considerations, and security arrangements.
