More than Physical Assault

[By Staff Reporters and Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA]

Business Med PracticeWorkplace violence is more than physical assault.

According to trauma specialist Eugene Schmuckler; PhD, MBA, CTS opining and writing in www.BusinessofMedicalPractice.com; workplace violence is any act in which a person is abused, threatened, intimidated, harassed, or assaulted in his or her employment. Swearing, verbal abuse, playing “pranks,” spreading rumors, arguments, property damage, vandalism, sabotage, pushing, theft, physical assaults, psychological trauma, anger-related incidents, rape, arson, and murder are all examples of workplace violence.

The RNANS

The Registered Nurses Association of Nova Scotia [RNANS], a leading study group, defines violence as “any behavior that results in injury whether real or perceived by an individual, including, but not limited to, verbal abuse, threats of physical harm, and sexual harassment.” As such, medical workplace violence includes:

· threatening behavior — such as shaking fists, destroying property, or throwing objects;

· verbal or written threats — any expression of intent to inflict harm;

· harassment — any behavior that demeans, embarrasses, humiliates, annoys, alarms, or verbally abuses a person and that is known or would be expected to be unwelcome. This includes words, gestures, intimidation, bullying, or other inappropriate activities;

· verbal abuse — swearing, insults, or condescending language;

· muggings — aggravated assaults, usually conducted by surprise and with intent to rob; or

· physical attacks — hitting, shoving, pushing, or kicking.

Cause and Affect

Workplace violence can be brought about by a number of different actions in the workplace. It may also be the result of non-work related situations such as domestic violence or “road rage.” Workplace violence can be inflicted by an abusive employee, a manager, supervisor, co-worker, customer, family member, patient, physician, nurse, or even a stranger.

The UI-IPRC 

The University of Iowa – Injury Prevention Research Center [UI-IPRC] classifies most workplace violence into one of four categories.

· Type I Criminal Intent — Results while a criminal activity (e.g., robbery) is being committed and the perpetrator had no legitimate relationship to the workplace.

· Type II Customer/Client — The perpetrator is a customer or client at the workplace (e.g., healthcare patient) and becomes violent while being assisted by the worker.

· Type III Worker on Worker — Employees or past employees of the workplace are the perpetrators.

· Type IV Personal Relationship — The perpetrator usually has a personal relationship with an employee (e.g., domestic violence in the workplace).
