Violence against workers happens at far greater rates in the health care sector than it does in the private sector overall. From verbal abuse to physical assaults, health care workers face frequent threats to their safety as they care for patients. Designing security features into a new health care facility or renovated space from the beginning can improve safety and security, maximize utilization of human resources and lower operational costs. Patient and employee satisfaction is enhanced by good security designs. This webinar will provide an overview of the newly updated Security Design Guidelines for Health Care Facilities.
