Aggression and violence is never okay.
Help us keep our colleagues safe from violence in the workplace.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the rate of injuries from violent attacks against healthcare workers grew by 63 percent from 2011 to 2018, and has continued to escalate over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At Wesley Healthcare, we believe that every patient deserves the best possible environment in which to heal, and that no one should ever fear for their safety at work. To that end, our leadership supports its team members in involving security and/or law enforcement to address any aggressive behavior they encounter while caring for patients.
- Be verbally or physically abusive
- Steal and/or damage hospital property
- Call security or law enforcement to the scene
- Pursue criminal charges to the fullest extent of the law
Providing outstanding care is why we exist, but we need your help to provide the best experience for our patients and their families and to keep our team members safe as they care for our community.
