Prevention of Violence in Health Care Toolkit

Prevention of Violence in Health Care Toolkit

For facilities that are new to prevention of violence in healthcare - and even for those who are more experienced - it can sometimes be difficult to establish an effective; process that positively impacts their staff and facility. This online Prevention of Violence in Healthcare toolkit is designed to be a resource for any facility that would like to establish a violence prevention program or improve their current program. It contains sample policies and procedures, articles, staff education tools and other documents that facilities can use to educate their staff and their leaders about this process. You are welcome to make use of anything in this toolkit, or to adapt it for your own purposes. Where appropriate, please cite the organization that is the source of the tool.

This toolkit will evolve and change over time, as we become aware of new tools and resources that may be helpful. If you have documents or resources that you would like to contribute, please email them to Rachel Jokela at

*Documents in this toolkit have been contributed by agencies outside of MDH. If you need a document made available in another format, please contact us.
