Office Safety and Security
White Paper Summary
Workplace violence can happen in any setting. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines workplace violence as “the act or threat of violence, ranging from verbal abuse to physical assaults directed toward persons at work or on duty.”
The possibility of being verbally assaulted, stalked, threatened or physically assaulted by a patient is both a concern and reality for physicians and healthcare providers, especially with limited resources and lack of onsite security in some outpatient practice settings. Our advisory recommends strategies to improve safety and security in the office practice setting.
