Course Curriculum:
The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting staffing shortages have spurred a rise in violent incidents at hospitals, which has drawn the attention of CMS, OSHA, and other agencies. Hospitals have a duty to protect patients and employees from on-site violence, and failure to do so has consequences. This presentation will address the growing number of citations and enforcement actions commenced by regulators and will give hospitals the necessary tools to not only protect their patients and employees, but also to maintain compliance and avoid citations and enforcement actions.

Learning Objectives:
1. This presentation will focus on hospitals’ duty to protect patients and employees from on-site violence, which has increased in recent years.
2. Provide hospitals practical, real-world guidance on how to implement policies and processes to comply with their duty.
3. Highlight the penalties, fines, and other consequences of failing to protect patients and employees from on-site violence.
4. Present resources to help hospitals maintain regulatory compliance and avoid enforcement actions.
