Increasing Workplace Violence Prevention: A Case Study of Sutter Health’s New Security Measures

Comsti emphasizes that the success of workplace violence prevention plans relies heavily on the reporting of violent incidents. Reports allow workers to stay informed about any incidents and collaborate with their employer to address areas that require improvement.

Golomb and her colleagues are pushing for increased safety measures at Sutter Health facilities. They recently presented a petition signed by over 100 psychiatry residents, fellows, and nurses demanding 24/7 security presence in the inpatient psych unit and intensive care unit to ensure a safe working environment.

Sutter Health has invested nearly $40 million in security enhancements for the unit where Golomb was attacked. Measures include the purchase of cameras, panic buttons, duress alarms, secure doors, and the hiring of a full-time security officer who patrols the area during the day.

Following Golomb’s story being published on March 8 by KQED, Sutter Health’s president and CEO Warner Thomas addressed hospital employees in an email titled “Keeping you safe from harm at work.” This communication emphasized the organization’s commitment to prioritizing employee safety and ensuring a secure work environment.
