The BC Ministry of Health and BC Nurses’ Union are providing $2 million in funding to reduce workplace violence at four healthcare facilities by, among other things, providing low-stimulation rooms for agitated residents, increasing mental health staff with violence response skills, improving training and education on resolving conflict, and upgrading communication systems and panic buttons. The four sites were chosen because they were identified as high-risk sites for employees.
