Workplace violence has escalated over the past 15 years, especially in the health care arena. Providers and staff as well as family members and bystanders (including other health care providers) frequently experience this violence. In November 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a memo on workplace safety that addressed care in a safe environment. On July 1, 2023, The Joint Commission’s (TJC) updated standards on workplace violence became effective. These standards included requirements for monitoring, reports, and investigations. This program will cover CMS standards for workplace safety and Emergency Preparedness standards, along with The Joint Commission’s Standards and Elements of Performance.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
  • Describe the November 2022 memo from CMS regarding workplace violence and providing a safe environment for care.
  • Recall the updates to TJC’s workplace violence standards.
  • Discuss the three areas impacted by the updates, including Environment of Care, Human Resources, and Leadership.
