Violence against healthcare workers commonly makes headlines. As noted by the ENA “No Silence on ED Violence” campaign, almost half of emergency physicians and nearly 70% of emergency nurses report having experienced physical assault in the workplace. A project to create a forum to address workplace violence (WPV) by empowering frontline staff was started. The goal was to provide a venue to discuss safety concerns with stakeholder leadership in real time to decrease risk and incidence of violence and target staff satisfaction by promoting an environment of physical and emotional well-being.
