The Joint Commission is currently seeking input on new and proposed requirements for workplace violence. Go to https://www.jointcommission.org/standards/standards-field-reviews/proposed-new-and-revised-requirements-for-workplace-violence-prevention-in-hap-and-cah-field-review/ for an opportunity to review and prepare.
One of the new expectations is that organizations would conduct an annual Work Site Analysis related to its Workplace Violence Program, which would include the following: a proactive analysis of the worksite, an investigation of the hospital’s workplace violence events, and an analysis of how the program’s policies and procedures, training, education and environmental design reflect current practices and confirm to laws and regulations.
