Did you know that 2 million American workers are victims of workplace violence each year? Here at San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital, the Workplace Violence Committee and leadership are dedicated to improving our Workplace Violence program, while maintaining a safe and secure environment. Since implementing the AVADE program and Workplace Violence Committee, we have received positive feedback pertaining to safety and a platform to discuss Safety and Security concerns. Therefore, WE proudly stand with #HAVhope to support a National Day of Awareness for our community, family and friends.
#HAVhope Friday: National Day of Awareness unites hospitals, health systems, nurses, doctors and other professionals from across the country, as well the local and national organizations they work with, to combat violence through the use of digital media.
