Beneath The Surface: The Haunting Liabilities of Workplace Violence


Santiago D. Chambers, Sr., BS., CHSP, CHEP

According to Press Ganey, more than two nursing personnel were assaulted every hour in Q2 of 2022 in the United States. Workplace violence is often accepted and treated as “part of the job.” Many caregivers are burning out and leaving with injuries that can cause emotional trauma and long-lasting effects on their mental well-being and confidence. Nursing Unions, Leaders, Regulatory and Accrediting Agencies are requiring Workplace Violence Prevention (WPV) Programs to address this Nationwide problem. Awareness, education, training, preparation, policies, and preparation are essential to reducing and eliminating Workplace Violence (WPV) in healthcare. Bringing stakeholders to the table and addressing this Spooky problem is essential to improving caregiver safety and security in the workplace.


  1. Identity those vulnerable and most at risk for assault
  2.  Define Workplace Violence (WPV) and triggers for it
  3. Reduce incidents with best practice interventions
