In a recent survey of almost 1,300 front-line care workers employed in Ontario Long Term Care homes found that 90% had experienced some form of physical violence while working – in some cases on a weekly or even daily basis. Keeping staff safe has become a growing concern in Long Term Care environments. There are many uncontrollable factors, such as varying degrees of resident dementia, interactions with family members, and staffing challenges, that can all become dangerous situations.
