Violence in the Long-Term Care Workplace: Protecting Ourselves and Our Residents

- A Video for staff in long-term care -

As caregivers in long-term care, we seek a workplace where we feel safe. In the facilities where we work, we are also charged to help safeguard our residents. Yet violence can occur -- no one knows the day or the hour it might happen, but it is our responsibility to identify the threat of violence and to be prepared should an incident occur.

This educational program and any accompanying in-service training will help viewers:

  • AWARENESS: Recognize dierent forms of potential workplace violence and the risk factors that can increase the likelihood of an occurrence
  • PREVENTION: Understand what you can do to help prevent violence -- against yourself, your co-workers and the residents under your care
  • RESPONSE: Know how to protect yourself and those around you in the event that violence does occur
"Violence in the Long-Term Care Workplace" is a practical educational tool. It demonstrates important skills necessary to recognize those risk factors that are more likely to lead to violence and to safeguard ourselves and those around us in the event that violence occurs.
