Thomas,

Thanks for the response. We do a lot of injury prevention programming in manufacturing and I've always thought that the hospital sector would be a logical fit for this type of programming and would hopefully be well received by Health Care Professionals. I'm not familiar with the typical Safety Structure of a Hospital. Do you know or can you share with me the typical safety structure of a hospital system?

Thomas,

I just got reconnected to the safety community site and see that you posted a message awhile back in regards to Safety Priorities. One of your priorities was musculoskeletal injuries. I've worked in manufacturing where this was a priority and always thought the hospital systems were in need of some help in this area. Just curious. What types of programs have been effective for you?

Hi Thomas,
I just joined this cybersite safety community. My primary interest in occupational health and safety is in the healthcare sector. Recently, I developed a website for healthcare which I think may be useful for you. The site address is: http://www.mtpinnacle.com/

That's very interesting that healthcare workers are at a higher risk. Why is that? I think you probably have developed a much more detailed program than I have seen in Texas. Mainly what we see at THR is family violence, battered spouses, child abuse, etc. I have worked at a hospital where the DON received a phone call in the middle of the night, answering the phone, she heard 5 gun shots and the words "you're next b_____." That was after she broke up a fist fight between employees at one of the nurse's stations. It was nothing to see cars in the parking lot with all 4 tires cut. This situation was very unique and I haven't ever seen it again.

All of our hospital's have response teams. What type of physical changes have you made? Also what type of risk assessment do you do for the staff?

Welcome, we're glad to have you. You raised an intersting issue. Although we've had little violence in our hospital system, that's a very big concern of mine. What have you done to prevent violence?
