Use of Force in Healthcare Settings

Use of Force in Healthcare Settings

Thursday, August 27, 2020 | 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT


According to the US Department of Labor, the rate of serious workplace violence incidents is more than four times greater in healthcare than in other sectors of private industry, and healthcare accounts for nearly as many serious violent injuries as all other sectors combined. Making the right decisions when it comes to protecting patients, staff and visitors, and securing your facility is paramount.


Due to the high rate of incidents, some facilities are considering the utilization of armed security officers. During this webinar, the presenters will:

  • Describe the current trends in use of force in healthcare settings, including underlying drivers and the impact of current events.
  • Explain what is meant by risk-based decisions for the use of armed security officers.
  • List the best practices for topics such as officer selection, policies, senior leadership support, education and more.

This discussion will help your team gain a better understanding of risk management’s role in ensuring a safe environment as well as mitigating liability and reputational risk. We hope you will join us for this important discussion.
