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.

“I truly value how much CPI’s philosophy revolves around treating every person with dignity and respect at all times—even during their most difficult, vulnerable moments. This philosophy helps workplaces expand their culture of care and operate with compassion as a guiding framework. The more that compassion can drive us, the more we can create positive change.”
