We appreciate our healthcare workers and acknowledge their heroism during this pandemic, but healthcare workers face another issue on a daily basis – workplace violence.

Per OSHA, workplace violence is a recognized hazard in the healthcare industry. It can affect and involve workers, clients, customers, and visitors. Panic button systems ensure authorities are alerted within seconds.

Hospitals can honor healthcare workers by recognizing their safety is of upmost importance by developing a comprehensive violence prevention program and implementing panic button systems for emergency response in the fastest time possible.
