When was the last time you reviewed your active violence safety and preparedness plans? Senior living and long-term care owners and operators need to have an updated active violence emergency response plan to prepare associates, residents, and others on how to respond when someone poses a threat to the community.
In our recent webinar, "Safety and Active Violence Preparedness in Senior Living & LTC," our panelists provided recommendations to help owners and operators better prepare for potential threats. Discussion highlights included:
- Learning what active violence is and the risk in senior living and long-term care.
- Understanding other types of violence that can occur in this industry.
- Knowing the elements of an active violence preparedness response and training for associates and residents.
- Having an awareness of the potential insurance implications.
