Report – Preventing workplace violence in the health care sector

The recommendations also include system enhancements, such as:

  • Including workplace violence policies in hospital Quality Improvement Plans going forward
  • Increased supports for patients with known aggressive or violent behaviours
  • Patient, family and staff input into triggers, behaviours and interventions
  • Creating reporting systems for workplace violence incidents

Ontario’s skilled and compassionate health care workers are our health care system’s greatest asset. By tackling violence in our health care sector we’ll be creating safer environments for our workers and improving patient care.
