The AHA’s American Organization for Nursing Leadership affiliate and the Emergency Nurses Association today updated their Guiding Principles on Mitigating Violence in the Workplace to incorporate best practices based on the latest research and a toolkit to help hospitals and health systems customize their workplace violence protection program to best protect their employees and patients. 

“As health care leaders, we know hospitals’ #1 resource is our team, and our priority is the health and safety of our health workers so they can best care for our communities,” the nurse leaders write in a blog post.
