AiRISTA Flow Supports H.R. 1195, a Bill to Prevent Violence Against Healthcare Staff

AiRISTA Flow issues a press release in support of the U.S. House bill H.R. 1195 to help protect healthcare staff from violence in the workplace. The law would require the Department of Labor to develop safety standards and require healthcare employers to take action to protect workers from workplace violence. The bill was passed with broad, bipartisan support (margin of 255-166) and is supported by the Biden administration.

Rates of violence against healthcare workers are up to 12 times higher than rates for the overall workforce, and 70% of non-fatal workplace assaults in 2016 occurred in the healthcare and social assistance sectors according to a 2016 GAO study.

“The pandemic has increased anxiety in hospitals and made challenging work environments even more threatening,” says Sy Sajjad, CEO of AiRISTA Flow. “Our frontline healthcare workers have quietly carried this load for us. This legislation tells them we have their back and are taking action.”

The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate where its fate is less certain. As a citizen concerned with workplace safety for our healthcare providers, please contact your Senators and encourage their support for the measure. For more details, read the recent AiRISTA Flow blog on the subject.
