Strength in numbers

By banding together to share information, stories and best practices, we are better positioned to counter this crisis.

Creating a Coalition

We are forming a coalition of leaders who are committed to better understand and confront the escalating epidemic of violence against our health care colleagues.

Our proven approach has been developed in concert with front line clinical end users, security experts and IT innovators from leading hospitals and health systems nationwide. By learning from those who are most imminently impacted by issues of staff safety, Strongline has developed a state-of-the-art staff safety system, specifically for health care workers.

Deteriorating Workplace Safety: A National Health Care Crisis

“Far too often, health care workers are legitimately fearful for their personal safety while caring for patients. Among other disturbing facts, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that approximately 75% of the nearly 25,000 workplace assaults reported annually occur in health care and social service settings; workers in health care settings are four times more likely to be victimized than workers in private industry; and health care workers have a 20% greater chance of being a workplace violence victim compared to other workers.”
