How Clinicians Can Prepare for Active Shooter Incidents

Posted from: https://acutecareinc.wordpress.com/2017/08/18/how-clinicians-can-prepare-for-active-shooter-incidents/

From Medscape:

Healthcare employers should provide workplace violence prevention education and should enact policies that empower employees to anonymously report behaviors that indicate that another employee may be on a path toward committing a violent act in the workplace. This may be provided as part of orientation or through annual mandatory training modules. If a physician’s employer does not provide this training, physicians should request it from department administrators, human resources, or security or hospital police departments. Physicians in private practice or small groups can review planning guides available online[6] and can work with local law enforcement or government offices of emergency management to provide preparedness and prevention education.
