The Healthcare Facilities Workplace Violence Prevention Act, or Louisiana House Bill 399, has been introduced to require healthcare facilities in Louisiana to establish violence prevention committees to create, review, administer, and provide guidance about programs on preventing workplace violence in healthcare facilities. Under the act, facilities would be required to:
  • Provide definitions of workplace violence.
  • Report workplace violence.
  • Provide employee training as appropriate.
We will continue to monitor the bill and post updates as it progresses through the Louisiana legislature.

About the Author

“Every individual on this earth deserves to be treated with compassion, understanding, and the right to keep their dignity intact. This can be difficult to honor at times when someone loses control of their behavior, but that’s where Rational Detachment and not taking it personally really kicks in. What has helped me be able to do this well goes back to the first day I was introduced to Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training. I was a participant before becoming a Certified Instructor (and before working for CPI), and over the years I have had so many opportunities to use what I learned way back then. Today, I live the skills automatically. It’s an honor to have been given those skills to live the philosophy of treating others the way I want to be treated.”
