Goal

To reduce threatening, violent and/or responsive behaviours by patients against HHS staff.

Brief Description

Components of the BSR program include implementing safety risk screening and communication alerts, creating patient BSR care plans, and applying interventions to mitigate risk. The program is currently being implemented at the Juravinski, Hamilton General, St. Peter’s and West Lincoln Memorial hospitals as well as the Urgent Care Centre. It will be expanded to McMaster Children’s Hospital in December 2019 and Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre in 2020.  The CEBI team is responsible for conducting an evaluation of the program implementation.
