In the article, “Workplace Violence a Growing Threat,” published by AHC Media on Jan. 1, 2015, Christine Tenley provides guidance to the many health care facilities that struggle with psychologically damaging work place violence. The article details the threat that work place violence has on the health care environment if not corrected soon, stating that “employers must be aware of the potential for liability from violence and threats.” Tenley puts emphasis on damage that day-to-day verbal abuse in the work place causes, and states that “policies and training could be significantly improved at most hospitals, and a zero tolerance policy is the way to start.” She goes on to discuss that hospitals must implement a standalone workplace violence policy and give employees a specific course of action to report violence.
