Persons who work in the healthcare industry are at risk for assaultive events as clients and staff have high risk stressors. In California, AB 508 is a law that requires all hospitals and healthcare facilities to conduct a security and safety assessment plan to protect personnel, clients, and visitors. All hospitals, healthcare facilities and residential care facilities are required to report any assault or battery to local law enforcement within 72 hours. All employees assigned to the emergency department will receive training on how to handle emergency room violence.
