California Regulators Probe Sutter Health for Undisclosed Assault on Psychiatry Staff Member

Sutter Health has recently invested nearly $40 million in security enhancements for its inpatient psych unit and intensive care unit, following a petition signed by over 100 psychiatry residents, fellows, and nurses. The petition demanded increased safety measures to ensure a safe working environment.

The implementation of workplace violence prevention plans heavily relies on the reporting of violent incidents, according to Comsti. These reports allow workers to stay informed of any incidents and collaborate with their employer to address areas that need improvement.

Advocates such as Golomb are pushing for increased safety measures at Sutter Health facilities. Following the publication of Golomb’s story on March 8 by KQED, Sutter Health’s president and CEO, Warner Thomas, addressed hospital employees in an email titled “Keeping you safe from harm at work.” This communication emphasizes the organization’s commitment to prioritizing employee safety and ensuring a secure work environment.

Measures include the purchase of cameras, panic buttons, duress alarms, and secure doors. A security officer now patrols the area during the day to enhance safety measures. The petition outlined demands for 24/7 security presence in these units to ensure a safe working environment.
