The FACTS

Workplace Violence in Emergency Medicine is no doubt an epidemic. That is a FACT.

•FACT: Almost daily your EMS, Fire or Emergency Department staff are threatened, yelled at or physically assaulted by a patient, upset family member or bystander.

•FACT: You understand, according to several studies, injuries from assaults are a leading cause for lost work hours in the fields of emergency medicine.

•FACT: We understand you are concerned about the response you or your provider would use in these particularly stressful incidents.

FACT: According to Bureau of Labor statistics, an assault on a healthcare worker is the most common source of nonfatal injury or illness requiring days off from work in the healthcare and social assistance industry.

FACT: DT4EMS' Escaping Violent Encounters (EVE) provides superior Workplace Violence Prevention (WPV) training affording staff the critical thinking skills to protect patients, staff and the agency.

FACT: DT4EMS' EVE has been named an "industry best practice" by Risk Management/ Safety Consultants.

Injury through assault remains a widely recognized, but little acknowledged, problem threatening emergency service personnel. Many EMS and fire personnel admit to being attacked by a violent patient, an angry bystander or upset family member. The frequency of assault on our fire and EMS providers is alarming and while most attacks are not life threatening, the risk of serious injury is evident and unpredictable. Responders require a reasonable, liability-conscious, effective means of preventing and avoiding assault, before it occurs, and defending themselves once attacked.

EVE4EMS/Fire covers the basic skills required by any responder or provider when facing possible or imminent assault or use of force.
