Pre and Post Incident Considerations
Extreme workplace violence has always been a major concern for healthcare security directors, emergency management professionals and hospital executives. Those tasked with the safety, security and resilience of healthcare organizations must be knowledgeable about all possible sources of violence that may affect their facilities and personnel, ranging from physical assaults by patients to the possibility of an active shooter incident. Therefore, it is critical to employ strategies for mitigating the risk of violence. Threat assessments and the management of risk those assessments reveal must be comprehensive. That may be easier said than done.
Our next “Threat Management” presentation in this series will focus on pre-incident and post-incident considerations to extreme violence.
Our first speaker, Barbara Daly will present “Red Flag” indicators as precursors to Extreme Violence.
• Understanding the Threat Assessment-Threat Management process
Our experts will then engage in a panel discussion which will focus on response, immediately following an act of extreme violence.
• Clarify organizational roles and responsibilities and identify additional campus mitigation and preparedness needs
• Learn about strategies for business continuity and long-term recovery
