Denver – July 23, 2019 – National security industry leader HSS Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its next generation, immersive online training solution for workplace violence in healthcare facilities, TEAM® Essentials. This latest training solution from the company, the only one in the nation designed specifically for healthcare settings, comes as States across the country are evaluating and implementing workplace violence regulation for healthcare. California’s Senate Bill 1299, the first of likely many Bills, was just mandated for implementation last year.
The company’s improved online training component of its TEAM® (Techniques for Effective Aggression Management)suite of offerings makes high quality training for healthcare team members more effective than ever, thanks to high caliber video training, simulation modules, and real-life healthcare case studies.
“Our company has been providing security services in healthcare facilities across the United States for nearly 50 years,” said Seth Karnes, the Senior Manager of Healthcare Training Programs of HSS. “This immersive new TEAM® Essentials program allows us to expand one of our most important service areas, hospital staff training on workplace violence prevention, as we work hard to proactively make the healthcare environment safer for both patients and healthcare employers alike.”
TEAM® Essentials eLearning is perfect for new employee orientation or system-wide training and is fully compliant with important healthcare oversight organizations such as The Joint Commission, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS), DNV National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare (NIAHO), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) guidelines.
TEAM® is a comprehensive aggression management training program, designed to aid all healthcare facility employees who might confront the hazards of human conflict, from patient care staff to physicians to administration team members. Participants are trained to identify factors that can escalate to aggression or violence and are taught the critical skills to confidently keep themselves and others safe. The complete TEAM® program has been endorsed by the Hospital Association of Southern California, the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, the Arkansas Hospital Association, the Oklahoma Hospital Association, the Kansas Hospital Association, the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations, and the Michigan Hospital Association, to name a few.
