#32 Preventing Violence in the Healthcare Workplace

Workplace violence in the healthcare setting occurs four times more often than in the average workplace and recently claimed the life of an orthopaedic surgeon in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This episode features a conversation with two AAOS leaders working to make a difference: one who chairs AAOS’ Patient Safety Committee and the other who is a sworn police officer. They share a dialogue around the surge in assault and violence, legislation moving through Congress to address the behavior, and practical tools to mitigate risks both at the individual physician and clinic level.
