Surviving Violence in the Healthcare Setting
by Randy W. Martin
From Trafford Publishing: This book will enlighten healthcare workers on how to deal with combative persons. Much has been written about how Healthcare Workers should respond to a potentially violent situation. Much information is available about violence in hospitals. Nonviolent intervention training is available for those employees who deal with violent persons whether they are a patient or a visitor. This training is to aid employees on how to effectively respond to danger and develop more confidence in dealing with aggressive behavior. Just looking at this guide will not help, however, but practicing the techniques will.
This book is for those who teach precautionary and preventive workshops, and a guide for healthcare professionals. My experience as a police officer and a security officer dealing with violent behavior has had a tremendous personal effect on me. I know the fear that you feel before, during, and after a violent attack. I have taught police officers, security personnel, and professionals across the USA how to handle a variety of attacks. Whether it is physical force, non-lethal force, or deadly force, surviving is the goal during a violent situation.
