The WSC is committed to communicate their
work and the current state of workplace
violence at UNC Hospitals. Resources and

FEATURE STORY

Recommendation 2: Capture, track, and trend
all reports of WPV - including verbal abuse and
attempted assaults when no harm occurred.

MAGNET ® STORIES

At the end of 2019, the WSC conducted a gap
analysis of UNC Hospitals' Workplace Safety
Program using the recommendations in the 2019
Joint Commission Sentinel Alert on Workplace
Violence as a target state. This gap analysis
identified a number of recommendations
for improvement, including the following:

In February 2020, the WSC prioritized and
approved its primary goals for calendar year 2020
to include: 'Define and develop a recommended
system for follow up and support after workplace
violence incidents, to include counseling and
trauma-informed care' and 'Develop a process
for elevating violent incidents for review and
dissemination of lessons learned.' Initial tactics
include the implementation of an aggression/
violence screening tool for patients on admission
to proactively determine who is at higher risk
so interventions can be developed and flagging
charts in EPIC to ensure relevant high-risk
information can be confidentially communicated
with all involved in a patient's care to increase
awareness and provide specialized interventions.
