Workplace Violence Prevention
Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare strongly believes that all patients and staff deserve to feel safe and be in an environment that has no harassment and violence. Violence, including threats of violence, in the form of physical or verbal abuse of patients, family members, visitors and staff is not tolerated at our organization. We enforce a zero tolerance approach to violence, harassment, and any other disrespectful conduct. Any person who verbally or physically abuses another person, or threatens to do so, is liable, with possible consequences including being temporarily or permanently removed from the property, and if warranted, reported to the police.
HDGH is proud to have been awarded a HSO Leading Practice award for our Workplace Violence Work. The submission, entitled "Embedding a Culture of Safety via a Workplace Violence Prevention Program" can be viewed on HSO's website by visiting:
