NJHA, McNamara and Associates Inc. Team Up to Provide Strategies for Controlling Workplace Violence
Date:3/9/2009

PRINCETON, N.J., March 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NJHA Corporate Services has partnered with McNamara & Associates Inc. of Morganville, N.J., to offer training and consulting services to its member hospitals for controlling violence in the healthcare environment. The deal comes on the heels of The Violence Prevention in Health Care Facilities Act, which directs healthcare facilities to establish a plan to identify and combat possible threats within their organizations.

NJHA has partnered with McNamara, specialists in preventing workplace violence, in the past to present gang awareness training to hospital staffs.

Hospitals, like all employers, are committed to providing a secure work environment for their staffs. But hospitals have the added complexity of opening their doors to all who are in need, especially through the Emergency Department. That access can leave the hospital vulnerable to gang activity, domestic situations and other possible violent encounters.

"Protecting our healthcare workers and providing a safe work environment for delivering care to patients is critical," said NJHA Senior Vice President William Kennedy.

McNamara CEO John McNamara commented, "Every day we are seeing how vulnerable hospitals, whose mission is to heal and save lives, actually are to the growing danger of violence."

McNamara will help hospitals follow the Act's requirements by conducting violence risk assessments and creating a comprehensive violence prevention plan that includes annual violence prevention training. McNamara and Associates' training will focus on identifying behaviors that have the potential to develop into threatening situations, as well as techniques and best practices for effective interaction and de-escalation of these circumstances.
